Nasser Abufarha, UW PHD candidate, T.A. member of (TAWP) and leader of the
University of Wisconsin Divest from Israel Campaign

Join labor and community activists as we learn about the growing national campaign to divest public pension funds from Israel and to divest stocks from those US companies helping the Israeli military. As a result of special legislation supported by the California state legislature, public pension funds for state workers, teachers and University of California and the California State University system are helping to fund the Israeli government by the purchase of Israeli bonds and by companies that provide support for the military in Israel. This financial and material support is used to further the apartheid wall being constructed by Israel and the discriminatory policies against Palestinians on both sides of their border.
Nasser Abhfarha and Mark Eveson have been leaders and advocates for action by the University of Wisconsin on the these issues and they will discuss their campaign (http://alawda.rso.wisc.edu), why labor has joined it and what can be done in California.
