On November 29, 2011, the Minnesota Break the Bonds Campaign (MN BBC), along with 26 other co-plaintiffs, including Palestinian residents of the besieged village of Bil’in in the Occupied West Bank and Jewish-Israeli members of the Israeli human rights group Boycott From Within, served a lawsuit against the Minnesota State Board of Investment (SBI) demanding that it cancel its Israel Bonds investments. The suit was filed in court on December 15, 2011, after the plaintiffs gave the SBI an opportunity to resolve MN BBC’s divestment demand without the necessity of court action. The lawsuit claims that the Board’s investments in Israel Bonds are unlawful according to Minnesota and international law.
