      Below is the Statement of the United Church of Christ calling for
      divestment. It was voted upon and approved by the General Synod (a
      representative body of the UCC churches....)


      THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the 25th General Synod calls upon the
      Covenanted Ministries, Pension Boards, United Church Foundation,
      Conferences, local churches and members to use economic leverage,
      including, but not limited to: advocating a reallocation of U.S.
      foreign aid so that the militarization of the Middle East is
      constrained; making positive contributions to groups and partners
      committed to the non-violent resolution of the conflict; challenging
      the practices of corporations that gain from the continuation of the
      conflict; and divesting from those companies that refuse to change
      their practices of gain from the perpetuation of violence, including
      the Occupation.
