Does Divestment Work? Students Demand Action: NPR

Protesters at Columbia University are demanding divestment from companies with ties to Israel due to the country’s invasion of Gaza. Other universities are also facing similar calls, with divestment targets ranging from Google to defense-related companies like Boeing. While divestments may not directly impact targeted companies, they serve as a symbolic victory for protesters. However, universities rely on endowments for financial stability, making divestment decisions complex. Despite opposition and potential risks, protesters continue to push for divestments, hoping to achieve both their goals and spark moral debate and attention.
