And while we are it, the New Orleans City Council passed a resolution in support of the Boycott, Divest, Sanctions of Israel movement. See http://mondoweiss.net/2018/01/divestment-proposed-campaigners/
Do you suppose San Francisco's Board of Supervisors will do the same? After all, isn't San Francisco an advanced northern city, while New Orleans is part of the Deep South, the Old Confederacy? Sorry, I was just being hopeful. After all, the current scene at the SF Board is to fight over which Democrat will continue the gentrification of San Francisco.
