Despite thousands of letters from members of the public, and a legal briefing from Lawyers for Palestinian Human Rights and the European Legal Support Center, CAF are still in the bid to provide rolling stock for HS2, Britain’s high-speed rail project. CAF operates the Jerusalem Light Railway, which solidifies Israel’s grip on occupied Palestinian land, including East Jerusalem. By participating in it, CAF is contributing to Israel’s serious violations of international law and Palestinian human rights.
Take action TODAY (30th March 2021)! Tweet below between 12-2pm!
Why won’t @HS2ltd @transportgovuk listen to human rights orgs and experts? CAF must be excluded for operating Israel’s Jerusalem Light Rail, serving illegal Israeli settlements on stolen Palestinian land. #BoycottCAF #CAFGetOffIsraelsApartheidTrain pic.twitter.com/uBxDo5oYCT
.@HS2ltd and @transportgovuk must listen to legal experts and exclude CAF from its rolling stock procurement. CAF are aiding and abetting Israel’s seizure of Palestinian land by operating the Jerusalem Light Rail.
Israel can only continue it’s system of apartheid and occupation of Palestinian land through international complicity.
CAF is helping Israel steal Palestinian land.
@transportgovuk and @HS2ltd should exclude CAF instead of award it any public contracts.
