The rejection of the EU-Israel Agreement on Conformity Assessment and Acceptance of industrial products (ACAA) is important for the promotion of peace and justice. In its agreements with third countries, we believe that the EU should promote and respect human rights and fundamental values. The benefits brought by the adoption of such agreements should not be built on breaches of international law, unlawful or inequitable exploitation of resources and/or unfair and discriminatory practices. In the case of the EU-Israel ACAA, EU citizens do not want to benefit from Israeli control over Palestinian land; obstacles to the movement of goods and people and exploitation of natural resources by the Israeli authorities; and the forced dependency of Palestinians on Israeli regulations and policies which impedes prospects of sustainable growth in the OPT and benefits Israeli industries.

This beautiful mosque is one of the oldest in Europe, surrounded by a big garden courtyard. The weather was clement and it was full of families and children throughout the day. There were games for them, food for all and many stalls.

West Surrey PSC had a stall at this annual event. There were briefing papers about Palestine, scarfs and other Palestinian goods for sale as well as Zaytoun food products. It proved popular. Many signatures were gathered for the petition regarding the abuse of children in Palestine by the Israeli army, and generous donations obtained."

 


Veolia Dumped Again!
 
Veolia Environmental Services was one of the shortlist of three for the £600-800 million 25 year contract for building an incinerator to serve North Wales.  The North Wales Residual Waste Treatment Project (NWRWTP), a joint procurement by Flintshire county council, Conwy county borough council, Denbighshire county council, Gwynedd council and the Isle of Anglesey county council, has been seeking a contractor to build and operate a waste treatment facility.   The Conwy County Peace Group has spearheaded a local campaign for the exclusion of Veolia from this contract for its grave misconduct in supporting Israel’s illegal settlements.  NWRWTP has now dropped Veolia from its short list. 
 
 

The Guardian's newest columnist, Joshua Trevino, tweeted last year that he would be ‘cool’ if Israel’s armed forces shot dead US civilians if they attempted to sail to Gaza on Freedom Flotilla II. US civilians preparing to sail on the flotilla included a Holocaust survivor and the Pulitzer-prize winning author, Alice Walker.

The Mela is always a great day out and the Mosque is worth a visit. As one of the earliest built in Europe and has a charming garden courtyard around it evocative of the traditional pattern of mosques in the Middle East. As well as stalls and events during the day of the Mela, there will be food there and it will be open from 11am to 6pm.
