United Church of Christ Committee Calls for Divestment from Israel

Le comité de l’Eglise Unie du Christ appelle au désinvestissement d'Israel
The Steering Committee of the United Church of Christ Palestine Israel Network, on Sunday, called on the United Church of Christ Board, United Church of Christ Pension Boards, United Church Funds, Conferences, local churches, members and other related United Church of Christ entities to divest any holdings in companies profiting from the occupation of the Palestinian Territories by the state of Israel.

The Committee also called on the church and church members to study theKairos Palestine document and take heed of its call for solidarity with the Palestinian people.

This is one of a number of resolutions passed by regional committees, including the Central Atlantic Conference, the New York Conference and, now, the Central Pacific Committee, in the leadup to the Thirtieth General Synod of the United Church of Christ, which will be held in 2015.
