Petition for Dalhousie University to divest from General Dynamics
1. Dalhousie University, as a knowledge institution, should not invest in companies that support apartheid or benefit from illegal occupation;
2. General Dynamics is an American defence conglomerate that has been providing the Israeli military with weapons systems and munitions repeatedly used in attacks on densely populated areas in Lebanon, the West Bank and Gaza (www.investigate.afsc.org);
3. Many organizations including United Nations commissions, Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch and B'tselem have ruled these attacks to be collective punishment and human rights violations;
4. BDS (Boycott, Divest and Sanction) is a growing international non-violent response to Israel’s illegal occupation of Palestine.
We urge Dalhousie University to remove all its investments out of General Dynamics.
