Israel Divestment Bill Fails to Pass at USF

Veto power can be a good thing, sometimes, as USF demonstrated:

An Israeli divestment bill at the University of South Florida (USF) was vetoed by the student body president and vice president shortly after its passage last week.

The student senate’s joint resolution called on the university to divest from corporations that the resolution says “are continuously and knowingly complicit in violations of Palestinian rights.”
