Palestinian civil society appeal to Dutch government: end relations with companies profiting from occupation

05-12-2013

gilo-olive-tree-klein.jpgThe  largest coalition of Palestinian civil society unions, parties and organisations calls on the Dutch government to be consistent with its stated position opposing the Israeli occupation and illegal settlements by ending all relations with companies – Dutch, Israeli or other – that are involved in this occupation and particularly in settlements. The Palestinian BDS National Committee (BNC) makes this appeal shorty before the visit of Dutch foreign minister Frans Timmermans to the region.
