UK unions vote to divest from occupation

Sept. 14, 2010 8:56 P.M. (Updated: Sept. 14, 2010 8:57 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Many of Britain's unions have thrown their weight behind a campaign of disinvestment and boycott from companies which are profiting from Israel's occupation of the Palestinian territories.

Trade unions voted unanimously at an annual conference for a motion put forward by the Transport Salaried Staffs' Association, seconded by the GMB, and supported by UNSION, the Public and Commercial Services Union, and the Fire Brigades' Union.

The motion called for the General Council to work closely with the Palestine Solidarity Campaign to actively encourage affiliates, employers and pension funds to disinvest from, and boycott the goods of, companies who profit from illegal settlements, the occupation and construction of the separation wall.
