We have 24 hours before the leadership of TIAA-CREF, one of the largest retirement funds in the world, holds its annual meeting in New York City. We will be there, asking TIAA-CREF to divest from companies such as Veolia, a French company that owns and operates a landfill in the West Bank. This landfill uses captured Palestinian natural and land resources to process the trash that comes from the illegal Jewish-only settlements.
Last Thursday we asked your help to get 10,000 signatures for this meeting; by Monday morning we had exceeded 12,000! We’ve doubled our numbers in the last 4 days. Can we get to 15,000 signatures for divestment in the next 24 hours?
TIAA-CREF is a large fund. As of last March it had invested over 19 million dollars in Veolia alone. The fund’s leadership needs to hear your voice: no more profiting from the Israeli occupation!
