The student senate at the University of California, Davis did not approve a divestment resolution targeting Israel.
The vote at 2 a.m. on Thursday ended in a tie, with five student senators voting in favor, five opposed and two abstaining. The student government vice president, Maxwell Kappes, declined to break the tie, abstaining instead.
The proposed resolution had called on the University of California to divest itself of holdings in companies “that aid in the Israeli occupation of Palestine and illegal settlements in Palestinian territories.”
The University of California system has been an active battleground in the fight over Israel-related divestment. Earlier this year, student governments at UCLA and U.C. Santa Barbara voted down divestment resolutions, while U.C. Riverside’s student government narrowly approved one.
