BDS-BERICHTEN NEDERLANDS PALESTINA KOMITEE

"Britse universiteiten medeplichtig in illegale bezetting"

18/01/2012
A.s. vrijdag zullen tijdens een bijeenkomst onder de naam "UK Universities and Palestinian Rights" Palestijnse en Britse activisten oproepen tot beëindiging van de financiering van onderzoek waarmee illegale nederzettingsactiviteit wordt meegefinancierd.

Het betreft een onderzoek gefinancierd uit het EU FP7 onderzoeksfonds waarmee een bedrag van €1,29 miljoen wordt gesluisd naar Ahava DSL. Het project heeft 11 partners waarvan Ahava er één is. Volgens professor Jonathan Rosenhead, voorzitter van de British Committee of Universities on Palestine (BRICUP) is de EU mogelijk om de tuin geleid door het feit dat Ahava zijn officiële adres in Israel heeft. Echter, zijn fabriek en laboratoria staan in Mitzpe Shalem, een illegale nederzetting op de Westelijke Jordaanoever.

 

Het Londense Natural History Museum dat het project coordineert is ook object van de campagne van BRICUP, zie het artikel in Haaretz "U.K. Museum lambasted over links to Israeli Dead Sea Firm"

*Press release from the British Committee for the Universities of Palestine*

*18th January 2012*

*For Immediate release*

*"UK universities complicit in illegal occupation":*

*Activists call for ending of EU funding of settlement activity*

*Natural History Museum already in the firing line*

A meeting this Friday, entitled "UK universities and Palestinian rights", will hear Palestinian and British activists call for the ending of European Union research funding for a project which they claim is complicit in illegal settlement activity within the Occupied Palestinian Territory (OPT).

The meeting will take place in one of the universities accused of breaking international law.Students at King's College London have led a highly visible campaign against the university's research collaboration with Ahava Dead Sea Laboratories, the Israeli cosmetics company that operates in an illegal settlement in the OPT.

Ahava DSL has received a total of €1,129M in EU funding from its Framework Programmes (FP) to date.One of its three projects within the current FP7 is NANORETOX,concerned with the reactivity and toxicity of engineered nanoparticles and the risks to the environment and human health. This project has 11 partners, including Imperial College and Kings College London. NANORETOX is coordinated by
the Natural History Museum and has a total budget of €302K over 4 years.

A letter in Tuesday's Independent newspaper, signed by 21 prominent academic and cultural figures, called for the Natural History Museum "to take immediate steps to terminate its involvement in Nanoretox".

Professor Jonathan Rosenhead, Chair of the British Committee of the Universities of Palestine (BRICUP) said: "The EU appear to have been bamboozled by the fact that Ahava has its official address in Israel.However, its factory, visitors' centre andlaboratoryare all situated in Mitzpe Shalem, an illegal settlement inside the West Bank.It is quite clearly in breach of international law, which
the EU is supposed to uphold.The fact that the EU is funding such a company is a disgrace.Kings and Imperial should have nothing to do with it if they want to maintain any ethical credibility in the academic world."

Prof. Rosenhead will address Friday's meeting, along with Omar Barghouti who is a founding member of the Palestinian campaign for Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel (PACBI).The third speaker will be Mehdi Beyad, a student at King's College London and an activist in KCL Action Palestine.The meeting will be chaired by Maha Rezeq, an independent Palestinian activist and journalist.

"Israeli Apartheid week", to be held in February, will see students and academics across the world preparing to launch similar campaigns against research collaboration with other Israeli companies and institutions that are at the heart of Israel's system of domination over the Palestinian people.
