For two decades, Palestinian rights activists have called for Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions against Israel. The aim of the BDS movement is to pressure Western companies and governments to stop funding and supporting Israel’s occupation of Palestinian territories and Israel’s system of apartheid. In their Left & the Law segment, Jan Haaken and Mike Snedeker talk about a student campaign at Portland State University calling for the University to cut ties with Boeing—a major defense contractor with production facilities in Oregon. Jan and Mike discuss the student campaign and recent disciplinary actions against students and faculty involved in Divest in Boeing actions on campus.
