Petition: Exclude Veolia Environment or any of its subsidiaries from all contracts that Leeds City Council awards.
We, the undersigned, demand that Leeds City Council exclude VEOLIA ENVIRONMENTAL SERVICES from the list of contractors approved to bid for the proposed incinerator facility in the city because of Veolia’s complicity in the illegal Israeli occupation of Palestinian territory.
- The United Nations Human Rights Council on 14th April 2010 expressed its grave concern at “The Israeli decision to establish and operate a tramway between West Jerusalem and the Israeli settlement of Pisgat Zeev, which is in clear violation of international law and relevant United Nations resolutions”;
- Veolia is a leading partner in the CityPass consortium and have been involved in building a light rail tramway system linking Israel to illegal settlements in occupied East Jerusalem; the operation of bus routes linking other illegal settlements; and the operation of the Tovlan landfill site in the illegally occupied Jordan Valley;
- Veolia’s involvement in these projects is in contravention of the UN’s stated demand that Israeli settlement activities and occupation should not be supported.
