"This Is Our Divestment"

Abby Zimet

The admirably progressive students at Hampshire College, a small
liberal arts school in western Massachusetts that was the first U.S.
college to divest from Apartheid South
Africa, will hold a fall conference on campus movements to
end the occupation of Palestine through Boycott, Divestment and
Sanctions on Israel, with the goal of forging a national BDS campaign.

FRIENDS: Now More Than Ever

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
