Say No to Veolia in North London!

WHO is Veolia?

 

Veolia is a transnational corporation operating in water management, waste management, transport and energy services which holds and bids for large and long-term contracts with local authorities in the UK and across the world.  They are currently bidding for North London Waste Authority 30 year waste processing contract worth billions of pounds.

 

WHY say no?

 

Veolia and its subsidiary companies are working in the Occupied Territories of Palestine on infrastructure projects such as the Jerusalem Light Railway and waste collection and dumping for illegal settlements and in so doing are complicit in Israel’s crimes under universal international law, the Geneva Conventions, the Hague Conventions 1897 and 1907, illegal settlements in Palestine are contrary to no less than six UN Security Council Resolutions.  In addition the bus routes 109 and 110 run on apartheid roads and serve only illegal settlements, run by Veolia's subsidiary Connex.

Israel is subject to dozens of further resolutions at the U.N. on other serious human rights matters which it ignores.  We don't want the North London Waste Authority to spend our taxes with a company that is complicit in grave breaches of international law which destroy the lives of others and put our own fundamental rights at risk by undermining universal rights! 

Following intensive campaigns by human rights activists, Veolia has been losing contracts with a growing number of local authorities in UK and abroad.  Several councils have already resolved to exclude Veolia from future contracts.  We now call upon the North London Waste Authority to exclude Veolia from the final bidding for the £4.7 billion North London waste management contract and exclude them from future bids.
