  1. I’m very sad to see Rhode Island Commerce Corporation and RI HUB supporting Israeli companies without any context around the ongoing occupation of Palestine. Do these companies oppose the apartheid conditions imposed by the Israeli government on Palestinians? How do they support the cause of ending these conditions? Given the state’s history in profiting from the slave trade, publicly subsidizing private profit at the expense of low-income workers, residents, and communities of color, and refusal to acknowledge and put an end to police violence on our streets, this fits within the state’s general approach. However, all Rhode Islanders should be ashamed and incensed at the state’s unapologetic support for the apartheid regime that continues to control government in Israel.
