Protest against Veolia in North London

Date: Thursday, 22 September Time: 1:45pm until 2:30pm Place: Camden Town Hall Address: Judd St [Opposite St Pancras Station] Postcode: WC1H 9JE
Please join our call on NLWA [North London Waste Authority] to exclude Veolia from the massive £4.7billion waste and fuel contracts in north London for its grave misconduct in servicing the Israeli illegal settlements, as stated by both the UK Foreign Office and the UN Security Council. In 2010 the United Nations Human Rights Council specifically declared the Jerusalem Light Railway [run by Veolia] to be “in clear breach of international law and relevant UN resolutions” (Resolution 13/7). The UK voted in favour of the resolution. Local councils all across the world have excluded Veolia following campaigns against the violation of Palestinian rights. Veolia has admitted the damage that this campaign is causing. Veolia is currently in the running to be awarded waste and fuel contracts with councils across north London worth £4.7billion. The NWLA is one of the biggest European contracts to be targeted. Let's make sure NWLA doesn't award Veolia this huge contract but give Veolia reasons to worry about its complicity with Israeli violations of international law. The 14 NLWA Councillors who will be voting on these contracts are meeting at Camden Town Hall on Thursday 22 Sept. In their meeting they would be discussing Veolia's bids to run the waste and fuel. This is the last NLWA meeting before it announces whether Veolia is shortlisted for the Fuel Use contract. The Waste Services contract shortlist may also be decided following this meeting. We call on all supporters of human rights to join us in sending a clear message to the North London Waste Authority that they should deselect Veolia.
