Britain’s Unions Commit to a Mass Boycott of Israeli Goods

In a landmark decision, Britain’s trade unions have voted overwhelmingly to commit to build a mass boycott movement, disinvestment and sanctions on Israel for a negotiated settlement based on justice for Palestinians.
 
The motion was passed at the 2009 TUC Annual Congress in Liverpool today (17 September), by unions representing 6.5 million workers across the UK.
 
Hugh Lanning, chair of the Palestine Solidarity Campaign, said: ‘This motion is the culmination of a wave of motions passed at union conferences this year, following outrage at Israel’s brutal war on Gaza, and reflects the massive growth in support for Palestinian rights. We will be working with the TUC to develop a mass campaign to boycott Israeli goods, especially agricultural products that have been produced in illegal Israeli settlements in the Palestinian West Bank.’
 
The motion additionally called for the TUC General Council to put pressure on the British government to end all arms trading with Israel and support moves to suspend the EU-Israel trade agreement. Unions are also encouraged to disinvest from companies which profit from Israel’s illegal 42-year occupation of Gaza and the West Bank.
 
The motion was tabled by the Fire Brigades Union. The biggest unions in the UK, including Unite, the public sector union, and UNISON, which represents health service workers, voted in favour of the motion.
 
The motion also condemned the Israeli trade union Histadrut’s statement supporting Israel’s war on Gaza, which killed 1,450 Palestinians in three weeks, and called for a review of the TUC’s relationship with Histadrut.

Amnesty International Flash Mob for Gaza

19/09/2009 - 12:00
19/09/2009 - 15:00

Want to be part of something….unexpected?

Host:   Amnesty International Ireland

Date:   Saturday, 19 September 2009

Time: 12:00 - 15:00. Meet at midday!

Location:  The gates of Stephen’s Green (just inside Fusiliers Arch)

We’re looking for as many people as possible to get involved in a flash mob that we’re organising in Dublin city centre on 19 September.

A flash mob is a large group of people who seem to suddenly appear out of nowhere in a public place, strike a pose or perform an action together and then, just as suddenly, disappear back into the crowds.

We will meet inside the gates of Stephen’s Green at midday and will only then be told what we'll be doing (all very clandestine), then head off into the city to raise public awareness about the devastation caused by the conflict in Gaza and southern Israel last Dec/Jan and the lack of meaningful action taken by our government or any other to demand truth and reparations for the victims. We will remind people that without their voice, governments can continue to turn a blind eye.
