On Monday and Tuesday, King's University College students will vote in a referendum.

The referendum question asks if they would like their student council, the KUCSC, to lobby the King's administration to divest from Israeli businesses that violate international law.

It comes after a year of debates within King's Council over the referendum question and after an appeal to the Affiliate Colleges Appeals Board.

The referendum, if endorsed, will largely be symbolic. That hasn't stopped opponents of the referendum from raising concerns about the campaign and the implications of the referendum passing.

After a two week campaign period, King's students will vote – though 30 per cent must do so for the referendum outcome to be binding.
