In New York this week, supporters of Palestinian human rights are highlighting a boycott, divestment and sanction movement as a way to impact Israel’s policy in the Occupied Territories. Activists will gather outside of TIAA-CREF Thursday, where shareholders are filing a motion to divest from the French multinational Veolia Environment. Activists say the company profits from operating a landfill on Palestinian land and segregated bus services. College students are also involved in the campaign, and a meeting tomorrow at Brooklyn College is generating controversy. Despite calls to cancel the gathering, school officials say it will take place. FSRN's Peter Rugh reports.
