Toronto graduate students adopt BDS resolution

BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- The University of Toronto’s Graduate Student Union has voted overwhelmingly in favor of a resolution to endorse the global campaign for boycott, divestment and sanctions of Israel.

Activists said that over 150 graduate students at their annual general meeting, on Dec. 10, voted on the initiative which passed by an overwhelming 97 percent.

The resolution stated that the Graduate Students Union "endorse Palestinian civil society’s 2005 call for boycotts, divestment and sanctions by calling on the University of Toronto to refrain from investing in all companies complicit in violations of international law," a statement from the activists said.
