University of California, Berkeley attend an "open university" strike in Nov. 15, 2011 in Berkeley, Calif.

The University of California Student Association on Sunday passed a resolution urging the public university system to divest from corporations that do business with the United States.
The association cited companies that work in the U.S. and eight other countries “with governments violating human rights,” according to a UCSA release. The United States was included because of its drone strikes in the Middle East, prison system and immigration laws, among other factors, according to the resolution.
Other states listed:

  • Israel
  • Brazil
  • Egypt
  • Indonesia
  • Mexico
  • Russia
  • Turkey
  • Sri Lanka
