An issue has recently arisen on the Princeton campus (and on the campuses of other colleges and institutions) over proposed divestment from companies that are alleged to be profiting from the Israeli military occupation of the West Bank and siege of the Gaza Strip. PAW reports on this controversy here, as does The Daily Princetonianhere. This is clearly an issue of interest to progressives, although exactly which side has the progressive cred may not be completely clear; PPro is taking no position, but is presenting this information for anyone who is interested.
The Princeton Committee on Palestine is supporting the pro-divestment position; more information and an opportunity to sign its petition is on its website here.
The anti-divestment position is supported by Tigers for Israel and The Center for Jewish Life; their petition is no longer available for signing.
This debate was considered by the University’s Resources Committee, which has issued a report stating essentially that, since there is no clear on-campus consensus, it would make no decision at this time. The full report is available here.
