Carleton University (Ottawa) Students Against Israeli Apartheid (SAIA)
SAIA noted that the Carleton University Pension Fund was invested in five companies
that are complicit in human rights violations and crimes under international law in the
Occupied Palestinian Territories - Motorola, BAE Systems, Northrop Grumman, L-3
Communications, and Tesco supermarkets - SAIA is calling upon Carleton University
to divest from these companies, and implement a Socially Responsible Investment
Their Campaign Recommends:
1. That the Carleton University Board of Governors, via the Pension Fund Committee,
immediately divest of its stock in BAE Systems, L-3 Communications, Motorola,
Northrop Grumman, and Tesco
2. That Carleton University refrain from investing in other companies involved in
violations of international law.
3. That Carleton University work with the entire university community to develop,
adopt, and implement a broader policy of Socially Responsible Investment (SRI) for its
Pension Fund and other investments, through a transparent and effective process.

Foersta AP-Fonden (Swedish Pension Fund)
31 March 2010 - The biggest Swedish pension fund Foersta AP-Fonden barred Israeli
arms maker Elbit Systems from its investment portfolios on ethical grounds (March
2010). Following the lead of Norway's state oil fund, Foersta AP-Fonden said it had
banned investment in Elbit because it had built and was operating a surveillance
system for a controversial barrier between Israel and the West Bank, an 'Israeli
company can be linked to violations of fundamental conventions and norms,' according
to the fund's Ethical Council.

South Africa - Apartheid
Maybe we can learn from history. Many comparisons have been made between
Apartheid in South Africa and the situation in Israel and Israeli-occupied territories.
The end of South African Apartheid probably was precipitated by divestment. The
movement to divest struggled worldwide for many years, but when it took off in the
United States, everything changed.
