While Ohio State students are fighting their student
government
for their right to vote on divestment students at nearby
University of Toledo overcame all the obstacles put in their path. Local
and national Zionist organisations lobbied hard to stop their vote.
They repeated the common slurs against BDS – that it was anti-Semitic;
that it singled out Israel; and so on – but the student senate
respected a 5400 signature petition and voted 21 to 4 to divest from
companies which profit from Israeli violations of Palestinians’
rights.

This vote follows closely on similar victories at Northwestern
University
and Stanford
University
.
