End EU Support for Israeli Attacks
Israel is inflicting further misery on Palestinians. The situation in Gaza has reached emergency levels â€“ there is not enough food, electricity, medicine, or even water due to Israelâ€™s siege. In the West bank, Israel is expanding its illegal settlements, imprisoning Palestinians behind a 400 mile long Wall, and killing peaceful protesters.
The EU response has been shameful. The EU tacitly supports Israelâ€™s brutal siege of Gaza and has granted important trading privileges to Israel under the Euro-Med Agreement. This is despite Israelâ€™s violation of the human rights clause of this agreement. Recently the EU has rewarded Israeli aggression by upgrading EU-Israel relations, a huge step towards integrating Israeli into EU agencies and markets.
To the EU Commission, Molesworth Street:
We call upon the EU to:
* Demand Israel abides by International Law, including a complete withdrawal from Gaza and the West Bank.
* Suspend the Euro-Med Agreement until Israel abides by its human rights clauses.
* Reverse the recent upgrade of relations with Israel
