Ahead of CAF’s AGM, tell CAF to get off Israel’s apartheid train!

* Available in Spanish and Basque

Ahead of CAF’s shareholders meeting on June 13, demand that the corporation ends its role in Israel’s illegal Jerusalem Light Rail project, which enables the ongoing annexation of the occupied Palestinian territory.

On June 13 the Basque firm CAF will hold its annual shareholders meeting. We must ensure that CAF's involvement in Israel’s violation of Palestinian human rights and international law is on the agenda.

CAF’s AGM coincides with announced plans by the extremist Israeli government to formally annex a critical part of the occupied Palestinian West Bank from July 1. 

The Jerusalem Light Rail is part of the ongoing process of entrenchment of Israel’s illegal settlement enterprise and its theft of Palestinian land. The Jerusalem Light Rail links illegal settlements, considered war crimes under international law, built on stolen Palestinian land to West Jerusalem.

Shapir, CAF's Israeli partner for the JLR project, is in the UN database of complicit companies with which economic relations should be terminated due to their violation of international law.


We will not stay silent. We have 13 days until CAF’s AGM, let’s make sure CAF gets our message!
