A webinar hosted by Eau de CAF, Palestine Solidarity Campaign UK and Palestinakomiteen i Norge, featuring our director Fayrouz Sharqawi along with European groups working on the CAF campaign. A discussion about the different strategies being developed in Norway, the UK and Palestine. In August 2019, a consortium led by the Basque company CAF and the Israeli infrastructure company Shapir was selected by Israel’s finance ministry to lead the expansion of the railway network serving Israel’s illegal colonial settlements in the occupied Palestinian territory, known as the Jerusalem Light Rail (JLR). Israel’s settlement enterprise is considered a war crime under the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court. The JLR project contravenes international law since it solidifies Israel’s grip on occupied Palestinian land, including East Jerusalem. By participating in it, CAF is contributing to Israel’s serious violations of international law and Palestinian human rights.
