TIAA-CREF censored their shareholder ballot and is fleeing NYC protests by moving their annual meeting to Charlotte, North Carolina. Groups all over the country will visit TIAA-CREF offices the day of the meeting to tell them: you can run, but you can’t hide–not from the movement for justice in Palestine/Israel!

Here’s the petition in brief

PETITION TO TIAA-CREF (abridged)

Please refrain from investing in any company that contributes to violations of human rights or international law by:

* Directly profiting from, or contributing to, the Israeli occupation of the Gaza Strip and the West Bank, including East Jerusalem.
* Providing products or services that contribute to the construction and maintenance of Israeli settlements and/or the Separation Wall, both of which are illegal under international law.
* Providing products or services that contribute to or enable violent acts that target civilians.

I also request that you establish investment criteria to exclude any such investments in the future.

As one of the largest financial services companies in the world, changing your policies will send a message of hope to Palestinians and Israelis who seek peace and justice.

8 people showed up
20 Jul 2011
With only 8 people showing up, this does not have the appearance of a widely accepted movement. And of those 8, the majority had no share in Tiaa Cref. The organizers did not handle this well.
