Marking Palestinian “Land Day,” students from the occupied Palestinian territory and colleges and universities around the United States have joined AFSC and Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP) in sending a video message to one of the largest financial services companies in the United States: divest from corporations that profit from the Israeli occupation. This three minute video calls on TIAA-CREF to end its investments in corporations that profit from Israel’s military occupation of the West Bank, Gaza and East Jerusalem. Some of these corporations include Veolia, Hewlett-Packard, and Caterpillar that often provide services or products on U.S. campuses, but also help to entrench the system of inequality and military occupation in Israel and Palestine.
