Ban Settlement Goods
Did you know that - despite Israeli settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem being illegal - the EU currently imports over 100 times more produce per settler than per Palestinian (see Trading Away Peace report). The UK and EU have an obligation to end settlement trade.
Please sign the petition today:
Israeli settlements built on Palestinian land in the West Bank are illegal under international law and opposed by the European Union and the UK Government. However, the UK Government and the EU allow goods from these illegal settlements to enter British markets. Despite the voluntary guidance, goods are often mislabelled as being ‘from Israel’ or their origin is not stated.
We call on the UK Government to exclude all goods from illegal settlements from our markets, and to press for an EU wide ban.
