yesterday, the boston city council, led by councilors arroyo and ross passed a unanimous resolution for the city to cut business ties – to the extent reasonable – with the firms and governments in state of arizona. boston is one of the first municipalities to pass a divestment resolution, but globe reports that NY, DC, and LA are looking into it too. big ups to felix for spearheading this move.
