If you have a moment support the UC Berkeley senate president who has been receiving lots of pressure to veto the historic senate vote to divest.
We need you to SEND LETTERS OF SUPPORT to the senate as well as President Will Smelko because they are receiving a LOT of hate mail for supporting this bill. Let the senators know that we are incredibly thankful for the 16-4 vote. Let President Smelko know that there are many people on Cal’s campus, as well as the broader community, who support this bill and ask him to NOT veto it.
The senate’s email is: senate[at]asuc.org
The president’s email is: president[at]asuc.org
Here is the press release of the bill as posted by Ali Abunimah,Co-creator of the Electronic Intifada.
