E-petition statement as on Government website

"Britain should make amends to the Palestinian people now
We call on our Government to acknowledge publicly that British policy and actions in Palestine from 1917 to 1948 led to catastrophe for the Palestinian people.
As Britain prepared to leave Palestine in 1948, its army stood by while Zionist forces terrorised hundreds of thousands of Palestinians into fleeing their homeland. In that way Palestine was transformed into Israel.
More than half of all Palestinians are still refugees today, most in dire straits. Israel denies them their right of return to their ancestral homes in what had been Palestine, and from the day of their flight has prevented them by force from returning.
As author of the 1917 Balfour Declaration, which was the origin of the catastrophe, and as the responsible power at the time of the crime, Britain has an obligation to make amends. It should acknowledge its share of responsibility for the creation of the refugee crisis, and recognize and promote the right of the refugees to return home. "

Veolia boycott campaign

Dump Veolia as sponsor of the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition

The Natural History Museum's inspiring Photographer of the Year exhibition is marred by its choice of sponsor Veolia, which provides services to the Israeli occupation by linking many illegal Israeli settlements to Israel via road and rail; and by dumping Israeli and settlement waste in the West Bank. This amounts to complicity in Israel’s grave breaches of the 4th Geneva Convention which forbids the establishment of settlements in occupied territory.

Veolia prides itself on the activities of all its constituent national companies, indeed on being a single entity worldwide, and on its social responsibility, high ethical standards and concern to act within the law. It repeats these claims time and again on its website. But it is far from being an ethical sponsor.

So we regard it as entirely inappropriate that the NHM should allow its flagship Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition to be sponsored by Veolia.

Sign our petition asking the NHM to find another sponsor! The deadline is 3rd March when the London exhibitiion ends.

You can find further information about the activities of Veolia in the occupied territories and the legal arguments in Veolia – a case to answer at http://jfjfp.com/?page_id=30763

NO 2 Veolia in North London!

Join our urgent call on North London Waste Authority to exclude Veolia from massive waste contracts in North London. North London residents can sign our open letter to councillors here and you can sign our petition here.

PROTEST to demand NLWA reject Veolia £4.7 million rubbish bids on Tuesday 25th September 2012, from 8.45am-9.45am at:

Camden Town Hall, Judd St, London WC1H 9JE [Opposite St Pancras Station and the British Library; between King's Cross and Euston]

We’ll protest to demand the NLWA (North London Waste Authority) does not hand Veolia the colossal £4.7 billion Fuel and Waste contracts.
This is the most important protest, because on 25th September the NLWA will hold its last meeting before the December announcement of its decision.
We will bring our message to the councillors on their arrival to their meeting – most of them will arrive between 9-9:30am.

You tube images of protest for prisoners on hunger strike.

posted on July 23 2012

We are twinned with Aizaria in East Jerusalem : Below are last month youtube images and descriptions of protests in support of prisoners on hunger strike on the road into Maale Adumin settlement.

Maale Adumin is a stratgeically built massive settlement near Aizaria which has 35,000 settlers and occupies land the size of Tel Aviv.

This illegal settlement has taken badly needed land from Aizaria and surrounding villages. Together with the wall it blocks access to Jerusalem for the Palestinians and separates East Jerusalem Palestinians into those inside and those outside the wall. The settlement has settler only highways for very speedy access into Jerusalem. It goes deep into the West Bank and separates the north from the south.
