Dat ook een bedrijf als Veolia medeplichtig is aan de Israëlische bezettings- en kolonisatiepolitiek is al jaren bekend.
Er is echter meer te zeggen over Veolia, aldus Workers World 16 oktober 2013.
I. History of bribery, corruption and embezzlement
2. Contempt for workers and their unions
3. Profits from privatization of water
4. Environmental destruction
5. Profits from Israeli occupation of Palestine
Veolia has operated bus lines through the occupied West Bank of Palestine, connecting illegal settlements to Israel. The Veolia buses use roads built on land stolen from Palestinians, while servicing only Israeli settlers.
While global pressure forced Veolia to sell off these bus lines in September, the company still operates light-rail services to illegal Israeli settlements in East Jerusalem, and owns and operates the Tovlan landfill in the West Bank, where it dumps refuse from Israeli settlements. Veolia also provides wastewater services to the settlements.
Veolia not only profits from apartheid in Israel. It has the largest commitment of any international company to Israel’s occupation of the West Bank. (corporatewatch.org.uk, October 2009)
