Northwestern University student group narrowly passes Israel divestment measure

Northwestern University’s Associated Student Government Senate narrowly passed a measure to divest from Israeli companies on Thursday. It urges the university to divest from Boeing, Caterpillar, Elbit Systems, Hewlett-Packard, G4S and Lockheed Martin, according to the school’s paper The Daily Northwestern.

In the vote, 24 people were in favor of the resolution sponsored by the BDS group Northwest Divest, with 22 people voting against the measure and three people abstaining.

The resolution serves as a recommendation to the school and does not hold sway regarding actual university policy, which maintains close ties with Tel Aviv University as a sister university.

Furthermore, it is unknown if the university actually deals with the targeted corporations, as the school does not release such information.
