Following the Gaza War of 2008-2009, Hampshire College has become the first college or university in the USA to divest from corporations with involvement in the Israeli economy.  Hampshire College’s divestment policy has been endorsed by:  Gush Shalom (the Israeli Peace Movement headed by Uri Avnery);  the rapidly growing US-based Students for Justice in Palestine; the National Association of Teachers in Further and Higher Education in the UK; the Congress of South African Trade Unions; the Canadian Union of Public Employees and the American Friends Service Committee as well as the Nobel Laureate Mairead Maguire; Noam Chomsky; Howard Zinn and Roger Waters of Pink Floyd — as well as a growing list of endorsers.
