United Methodists Debate Divestment from Israel’s Occupation

April 26, 2012 IMEU

As support grows for a selective Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) campaign against companies profiting from Israel's occupation of Palestinian lands, many around the world are watching closely as the United Methodist Church considers a groundbreaking resolution at its general convention in Tampa, Florida. The resolution calls for the church to "divest promptly" from Caterpillar, Motorola Solutions, and Hewlett-Packard -- companies that supply some of the products used to maintain Israel's illegal policies in the occupied Palestinian territories.

Please join the IMEU as we discuss these and other issues with Palestinian, Israeli, and American supporters of the divestment resolution.
