San Diego Student Group Supports Israel Boycott Motion

A student council at the University of California-San Diego passed a nonbinding resolution calling for boycotting firms with business ties to Israel.

The Associated Student Council of UCSD voted in favour of the motion on March 13, with 20 in favour, 12 against and one abstention, according to a press release by Students for Justice in Palestine, the group that proposed the motion.

The resolution is similar to recent resolutions passed at UC-Irvine and UC-Riverside and names Boeing, General Dynamics Corporation, Hewlett Packard, Ingersoll-Rand and Raytheon among other companies that “profit from Israel’s military occupation and violence against Palestinians in violation of international law and human rights.”

The vote is not binding on the university, the pro-Palestinian group said.
