HeadlineFeb 23, 2024

In a major victory for the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions Movement, Norway’s pension fund has divested their entire Israel Bond holdings. Four Norwegian universities have also decided to cut ties with Israeli institutions linked to the IDF.

In the U.S., the student government of the University of California at Davis last week voted to divest its $20 million budget from “companies complicit in the occupation and genocide.” They cited companies like McDonald’s, Sabra, Starbucks, Airbnb, Disney and Chevron.
