Breaking News, March 24, 2022


Congratulations to UBC AMS on their successful divestment motion, UBC SPHR and the other 19 organizations involved in bringing the motion forward.


UBC students join with two Montreal universities, McGill and Concordia and the University of Toronto in successful motions calling for boycott and/or divestment from companies that support Israeli apartheid.

The UBC AMS Council voted ‘yes’ to demand the university  divest from companies involved in or complicit in human rights violations against Palestinians.

The AMS student society voted to write a letter regarding the “the Israeli state’s system of apartheid and its occupation of Palestine” and calling on the Board of Governors and UBC to divest from nine companies.  These nine companies either appear in the UN database for businesses involved in activities that were deemed to be “human rights violations concerns or or are other companies that have been cited to be violating the human rights of Palestinians.

We are ecstatic to announce that our student union has passed our divestment motion! Thank you to all the hard work of our divestment coalition of clubs and countless other allies for their tireless work, research and campaigning. This is a huge step towards Palestinian rights here at UBC. But this is not the end. We will keep fighting – until liberation.
