MN Break the Bonds petition and MN SBI Meeting Wednesday, March 4, 10 a.m. SBI Building, 60 Empire Drive, St. Paul. This is a very critical moment in the campaign to divest the state of MN from its holdings in Israel bonds. MN Break the Bonds, the statewide divestment campaign targeting MN's investments in Israel bonds, has been pushing the State Board of Investments to divest from its $10+ million holdings in Israel bonds. What is critical is that these bonds mature at the end of June, which means the state will receive the amount it invested back, and have to decide where to reinvest these funds. We are putting all of our efforts into pushing the State Board of Investments to not reinvest in Israel bonds. This is a critical point because if we can get them to not reinvest, then the state will not at all hold any direct investments in Israel - which is a huge victory for the global movement for boycott, divestment, and sanctions as called for by Palestinian civil society. FFI: MN Break the Bonds 11. Rally to Stop U.S. WARS and Drone Killings! Saturday March 21 at 1:00 pm Lake Street & Hiawatha Avenues, Minneapolis.
