Thanks for sharing, Rebecca.
The campus divestment movement suffered yet another setback at UC Davis as the Aggies for Israel fought back against the BDS bullies, and prevailed. The vote was 5-5, with 3 abstentions. The resolution ultimately failed when the Senate Vice President declined to break the tie.
And finally, Sonoma county has renewed its contract with transportation giant Veolia, in spite of a massive pressure campaign led by the North Coast Coalition for Palestine. Interestingly enough, the coalition declared "victory' in their campaign last November. They even had a party. Oops.
Guess they're right. Denial isn't just a river in Egypt. For the BDS cru, its a life-style choice.
