Palestinian Grassroots Anti-apartheid Wall Campaign
Posted in :
Military Embargo, Elbit

Stop the Wall collects here the relevant documentation - including briefings, letters, parliamentary questions and answers from the EU - for the campaign "Stop Supporting Israeli Apartheid - EU Funding For Elbit Systems". The initiative, developed in cooperation with the BNC and ECCP, aims to stop funding to Elbit Systems and other Israeli companies involved in the military-industrial-scientific complex of Israel, a country that systematically commits war crimes and is in ongoing violation of the basic norms of international law and human rights.

Such funding violates not only the growing call for a military embargo on Israel but as well the EU’s obligations under international law.

The documentation below is listed in chronological order:

  1. Stop the Wall's briefing "Supporting Israeli Apartheid - EU Funding For Elbit Systems"
  2. Factsheet summarizing the Stop the Wall briefing "Supporting Israeli Apartheid - EU Funding For Elbit Systems"
