Statement from California Faculty Members in Support of SB118

To the ASUC,

We the undersigned faculty members from California educational institutions call for reaffirming the ASUC Bill in Support of UC Divestment from War Crimes. We stand united in support of the right of the Palestinian people to be free of the repression and violence that the Israeli military policy is inflicting upon them. We also stand united in our strong belief that divesting from companies that provide significant support for the Israeli military is both a moral and strategic way to take responsibility for how tuition and taxpayer-funded research dollars are used in our educational institutions. We urge the UC system to take the lead in this direction as has been its tradition, and commend the students who are working to achieve this goal. We reject the portrayals of this action as anti-Semitic. We maintain that it does not make a choice between Palestinians and Israelis, but between universal human freedom and oppression.
