This just in: as of 4 a.m. this morning, the veto of the divestment bill was upheld.

The votes were tallied and even though 13 people were in favor of overriding the veto, they fell one vote short of the 14 needed to override. Five senators voted to keep the veto, one abstained, and one wasn’t there.

The topic is of course a very controversial one, and it’s gained Berkeley international attention from Desmond Tutu to Dr. Mustafa Barghouthi, member of the Palestinian Legislative Council and nominee for the 2010 Nobel Peace Prize. So there are going to be some opinions about this. Many opinions, in fact. You might even say a plethora. Stay tuned.
