Palestine's Football Pride - BBC Online
Last Summer the campaign for a sporting boycott of Apartheid Israel gathered momentum after Israel's bombing of Lebanon. In July a large pickett was held outside the Davis Cup Israel-Britain tennis tournament in Eastbourne. On the 3rd August a planned Israel-Scotland cricket match was cancelled after protests were announced. Protests have taken place over Arsenal's sponsorship deal with Israel.
The sporting boycott was an integral tool in the movement against South African Apartheid and can be used effectively to highlight Israeli apartheid. Sporting boycott actions often receive significant media attention in the UK, Israel and Palestine.
EDM 913: ISRAEL'S RELATIONSHIP WITH THE EU
Dear members, friends and supporters
Please ask your MP to sign the Early Day Motion 913 below (if you haven’t already done so): ISRAEL'S RELATIONSHIP WITH THE EU
To see which MPs have signed please use this link: http://tinyurl.com/2ytrfu or visit the Parliamentary website for EDMs: http://edmi.parliament.uk/EDMi/Default.aspx
ISRAEL'S RELATIONSHIP WITH THE EU
That this House notes that the Israeli government has expressed the desire to upgrade its relations with the EU to the same level as Norway and Switzerland; further notes that this would include the ability to have free passage of goods, people and capital between the two entities; further notes that Israel remains in consistent violation of UN Security Council Resolutions and the Fourth Geneva Convention, has routinely prevented the free movement of Palestinian goods and people and has withheld Palestinian funds from their people; further notes that these and other grievous human rights abuses represent a clear breach of Article Two of the EU-Israel Association Agreement, which calls for adherence to human rights laws; commends the International Development Select Committee's report into development assistance and the Occupied Palestinian territories, and in particular its recommendation that `the UK should urge the EU to use the Association Agreement with Israel as a lever for change and to consider suspending the Agreement until there are further improvements in access arrangements'; and urges the Government to insist that no upgrading of Israel's relations with the EU be considered until the Israeli government has brought itself into full compliance with international law, including the permanent lifting of all barriers to freedom of movement for Palestinian goods, people and capital.
