Alstom: Building the Infrastructure of the Occupation
Alstom is a French multinational company profiting directly from Israel’s occupation of the Palestinian territory. Alstom is a major partner in the Jerusalem Light Rail, a project that will help to cement Israel's hold on occupied East Jerusalem and tie the surrounding settlements even more firmly into the State of Israel. The JLR project has been declared unlawful by the UN. An increasing number of governments, unions and civil society organizations are taking action to end their complicity with Veolia’s violations of international law.
This briefing hopes to be a guide for campaigners working against Alstom's involvement in Israeli occupation.
