The student senate at the University of California-Santa Barbara began a vote on a proposed anti-Israel, pro-Boycott, Divestment and Sanction (BDS) position at 7 p.m. However, there were discussions and disagreements among the student senators for ten hours, as students bickered over the specificity of the proposal and never got around for a vote. At around 5 a.m., enough student senators walked out of the meeting that the vote was ultimately canceled.
