Don't buy any drones from Israel !
This petition had 6,256 supporters
The Swiss Army is planing to purchase surveillance drones from Israel by 2015. The amount of this investment is estimated between 300 and 400 Million Swiss Francs.
The military collaboration with Israel contradicts to the special obligations that Switzerland has as not only a state party to the Geneva Conventions but also as its depository state. Israel has been violating these and other international laws for more than four decades by its policy of occupation, colonialisation and apartheid.
We therefore demand the Swiss Federal Council and the Swiss Parliament not to buy surveillance drones from Israel and to stop the whole military collaboration with Israel until it complies with international law and Palestinian rights.
