All you eager consumers of this savory garbanzo/tahini union, know this: you might not be voting on the fate of Princeton hummus today. After an appeal on Sunday night, the PCP’s referendum may not appear on Monday as originally planned.
For the uninitiated, here’s a quick recap of The Great Hummus Debacle of 2010:
Currently, the only hummus served on campus is an American brand called Sabra, partially owned by the Israel-based Strauss Group. The Princeton Committee on Palestine (PCP) has claimed that Strauss Group is propagating human rights violations because they support the Israeli military. PCP created a petition for their cause and got over 200 student signatures — the amount required to get a referendum onto the USG ballot, where the entire student body can vote on it. The PCP’s referendum insisted that the USG issue a formal recommendation to Dining Services, asking them to provide alternative hummus options. It was cleared to appear on tomorrow’s ballot.
