Coalition of Women for Peace – Israel in support of Rho


December 15, 2011

To: City Council of Rho – Italy

CWP Support for the resolution to condemn Pizzarotti’s activity in the occupied West Bank

The Coalition of Women for Peace[1] would like to express its support and appreciation for the City Council of Rho’s resolution to condemn Pizzarotti for its activity in the occupied Palestinian territories. It is a brave and necessary step towards raising the awareness of the international community to the participation of companies like Pizzarotti in the Israeli occupation of Palestinian land and the continuing oppression of the Palestinian people.

In October 2010, Who Profits from the occupation[2] published a report on the new Israeli Tel-Aviv-Jerusalem fast train project, in which Pizzarotti is involved[3]. As indicated in our report, the route of this train line, sometimes referred to as the A1 train, crosses official state borders into the occupied West Bank using occupied Palestinian land, some of it privately owned, for a transportation project aimed exclusively for Israelis.

Palestinian Civil Society Calls for Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions

against Israel Until it Complies with International Law

and Universal Principles of Human Rights

One year after the historic Advisory Opinion of the International Court of Justice (ICJ) which found Israel’s Wall built on occupied Palestinian territory to be illegal; Israel continues its construction of the colonial Wall with total disregard to the Court’s decision. Thirty eight years into Israel’s occupation of the Palestinian West Bank (including East Jerusalem), Gaza Strip and the Syrian Golan Heights, Israel continues to expand Jewish colonies. It has unilaterally annexed occupied East Jerusalem and the Golan Heights and is now de facto annexing large parts of the West Bank by means of the Wall. Israel is also preparing – in the shadow of its lanned redeployment from the Gaza Strip – to build and expand colonies in the West Bank. Fifty seven years after the state of Israel was built mainly on land ethnically cleansed of its Palestinian owners, a majority of Palestinians are refugees, most of whom are stateless. Moreover, Israel’s entrenched system of racial discrimination against its own Arab-Palestinian citizens remains intact.

The global movement for a campaign of Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) against Israel until it complies with international law and Palestinian rights was initiated by Palestinian civil society in 2005, and is coordinated by the Palestinian BDS National Committee (BNC), established in 2007. BDS is a strategy that allows people of conscience to play an effective role in the Palestinian struggle for justice.

For decades, Israel has denied Palestinians their fundamental rights of freedom, equality, and self-determination through ethnic cleansing, colonization, racial discrimination, and military occupation. Despite abundant condemnation of Israeli policies by the UN, other international bodies, and preeminent human rights organisations, the world community has failed to hold Israel accountable and enforce compliance with basic principles of law. Israel’s crimes have continued with impunity.

Informazioni sul Fronte Palestina

Per sviluppare un lavoro di classe nel sostegno alla lotta di liberazione della Palestina e degli altri popoli oppressi e aggrediti dall'imperialismo, oltre alle sterili e dannose concezioni del pacifismo e dell'equidistanza tra aggressori e aggrediti che hanno in gran parte contribuito ad affossare il movimento contro la guerra nel nostro paese negli ultimi anni, si è deciso di fondare l'organismo nazionale Fronte Palestina.
