Students at Hampshire College explain why they have become the first college in the US to divest from Israel’s occupation:
Hampshire was the first American College to divest from South Africa back in 1977 and was followed by hundreds of other US Colleges. Let’s hope history repeats itself.
Archbishop Desmond Tutu comments:
“This is a monumental and historic step in the struggle for Palestinian equality, self-determination and peace in the Holy Land by non-violent means. I see what these students have accomplished as a replica of the support of their College of our struggle against apartheid in South Africa. Hampshire College’s decision to divest should be a guiding example to all institutions of higher learning.”
