Evergreen State College Agrees to Work Toward Divesting from Israel

HeadlineMay 06, 2024

School officials at Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington, have reached an agreement with student protesters and have vowed to work toward divesting from “companies that profit from gross human rights violations and/or the occupation of Palestinian territories.” Evergreen College is the alma mater of Rachel Corrie, the American peace activist killed by Israeli troops in Gaza.

In Gaza, Palestinians have voiced support for the student protests.

Nawar Diab: “My message for the American students is that we are extremely proud, and their protests and their solidarity with Palestine and with Gaza gave us a glimpse of hope. And they didn’t leave us left alone. They didn’t leave us feeling helpless.”

In Britain, solidarity encampments have also been set up on the same day at Cambridge and Oxford.
