[This article documents the spread of campus movements to dis-invest from the Israeli occupation of Palestine:]

"...One such campus is the University of California-Berkeley, one of the most prominent public research universities in the United States according to many analysts.

"UC-Berkeley's student senate approved a bill last Thursday, March 18, by a vote of 16-4 encouraging divestment from General Electric and United Technologies, both of which produce military items for the Israeli military, according to the divestment resolution...."

"...Similar measures recommending divestment from companies that provide military support for Israel have also been passed during the 2009-2010 school year by the University of Michigan-Dearborn, the University of Wisconsin, and the University of Sussex in the United Kingdom. Wayne State University's student council has also voted for total divestment from Israeli military suppliers in the past."
