I was disappointed, saddened and, yes, outraged to read in the Dec. 3 Herald that the Advisory Committee on Corporate Responsibility in Investment Practices voted to recommend that the University divest from “companies identified as facilitating human rights abuses in Palestine.”

Two thirds of the ACCRIP members present voted in favor of the motion.

Brown Students for Israel presented an argument against University divestment from companies allegedly contributing to human rights abuses in Palestine during an Advisory Committee on Corporate Responsibility and Investment Policies meeting Tuesday evening.

At ACCRIP’s first meeting of the academic year, members of the committee and students discussed whether Israeli occupation of Palestinian territories constitutes social harm. ACCRIP Chair Chi-Ming Hai facilitated a conversation between student groups for and against divestment.
