“…Divestment movements are also gaining steam at the University of Arizona, Brown University, where noted author Noam Chomsky wrote a letter endorsing Brown Students for Justice in Palestine’s push [for divestment], and Georgetown University, where a forum was recently held.
“Similar measures recommending divestment from companies that provide military support for Israel have also been passed during the 2009-2010 school year by the University of Michigan-Dearborn, the University of Wisconsin, and the University of Sussex in the United Kingdom.
