An Update and Op-Ed

So my goal for this blog has been to put at least one medium-length piece out every other week. So far I've been pretty good about this (we'll see what happens around finals week). However, this week things are a little different because a significant event happened on campus: we successfully passed a student government resolution to urge the UC regents to divest from companies committing human rights violations related to the Israeli occupation of Palestine. In light of this, Yazan Amro and I decided to publish an Op-Ed for a Palestinian advocacy site on the matter. We discuss the three-year long campaign, how this represents a turing point in the on-campus debate, and the battles to come. Consider this my the fulfillment of my bi-weekly post. You can find the piece HERE.
