ANALYSIS OF THE RESULT OF THE ACAA VOTE ON 23/10/12

 

The motion to support the “Protocol to the Euro-Mediterranean Agreement establishing an association between the EC and Israel on Conformity Assessment and Acceptance of Industrial Products (CAA)” was passed with the following votes:

 

For 379 (58%) - minimum needed to pass 305

Against 230 (35%)

Abstentions 41 (6%)

 

Details are available at:

This looks like a resounding defeat for those who consider that the European Union should move towards effective sanctions against Israel and its illegal oppression of the Palestinian people.

Although the headline is of a defeat, however, a closer analysis of the results (attached) reveals many positive elements on which to build in the future.

The issues

On 8 September 2012 we found to our astonishment that distributing leaflets in Woking Town Square was no longer possible without the prior agreement of the police and is suddenly subject to the wishes of private security guards (from Axis Security Services Ltd) who have been contracted by the two adjoining shopping centres, although the Square is owned by Woking Borough Council.

It seems the police has agreed to hand over its responsibility for public order in the Town Square to Axis SSL, but no details have been made available of exactly what written contractual agreement has been signed when and whether this agreement preserves the pre-existing public rights in the Square.
