“Senate Bill 118a, a bill enacted in a meeting of the ASUC Senate on Wednesday, March 17th, 2010, and entitled “A Bill to In Support of UC DIVESTMENT FROM WAR CRIMES,” is hereby vetoed effective as of this 24th Day of March, 2010.”

Will Smelko, the president of the UC Berkeley student  senate, vetoed the divestment bill that the senate had overwhelmingly approved last week. Attached is President Smelko’s official  Statement.

Next week the student senate will vote on whether to overturn the veto  of  President Smelko. Please consider sending an email  to President Smelko (president@asuc.org) thanking him for his excellent decision and statement, and copying the rest of the student  senate (senate@asuc.org) to let them know of your support for the  president’s position.
