MN Break the Bonds Campaign Demands State Board of Investment Divest From Israel


Summary: The Break the Bonds Campaign started a lawsuit to make the Minnesota State Board of Investment (SBI) divest from its purchase of sovereign Israel Bonds until Israel ceases its Human Rights and International Law violations. Such investment is held to be both imprudent and unlawful, being in violation of Minnesota statutes on the types of foreign investments the SBI may make.
