For months, students have been preparing for the grueling USAC meeting to vote on a Resolution to Divest from Companies that Violate Palestinian Human Rights. Tonight, the months of planning come to an end, as students wield their words in a battle for or against divestment, and engage in friendly and civil dialogue (hopefully).
In case you are not able to attend at 7 p.m., Ha’Am will be live-tweeting the council meeting, so follow us on Twitter (@HaamNews). Alternatively, the USAC will ensure that the official minutes for the meeting will be live streamed, and can be followed along here starting at 7 p.m.
Finally, in case you’ve missed the variety of opinions campaigners for both sides have been propagating on social media, catch up by reading a compilation of the Daily Bruin Opinion section:
