The document says Fellow Georgetown Students and faculty members, The Committee for Responsible Investment (CRI) is holding an important petition drive from Monday April 9 through Friday April 13, in front of New South Cafeteria. The document says our petition states the following: WE THE UNDERSIGNED OPPOSE THE ADMINISTRATION'S POLICY OF INVESTING IN COMPANIES WHICH DO BUSINESS IN SOUTH AFRICA, BECAUSE SUCH BUSINESSES HELP TO SUPPORT RATHER THAN TO REFORM THE INHUMANE APARTHEID SYSTEM. WE HEREBY PLEDGE TO WITHHOLD ANY DONATIONS TO GEORGETOWN UNIVERSITY UNTIL THE UNIVERSITY DIVESTS ITSELF OF SUCH INVESTMENTS. The document says Georgetown University's endowment currently exceeds $97 million dollars. Our research shows that $9,626,738; of this -- about 10% -- is invested in U.S. Companies that do business in South Africa; CRI is conducting a divestment drive with the supreme goal of getting Georgetown endowment dollars out of these companies. The document discusses I.B.M. (International Business Machines, IBM), Revlon, American Express, Goodyear Tire, Johnson & Johnson (Johnson and Johnson), and corporations.
