Veolia in flames.

Can the person(s) who did this please own up!

Obviously someone who never understood the meaning of 'matches, matches never touch, they can hurt you very much...' has been taking unadvised and illegal initiative.

As we all know sabotage is not acceptable and neither is empty headed vandalism.

Whoever the culprit and whatever the intention, should not allow anyone to forget that Veolia is a 'complicit' company in the further dispossession and occupation of Palestine. According to the Palestine Solidarity Campaign's BiG website: "...with its involvement in this project, the company is directly implicated in the Israeli occupation of Palestinian territory and is playing a key role in Israel's attempt to make its annexation of the Palestinian territory of east Jerusalem irreversible. As a willing agent of these policies, Veolia is undermining any chance of a just peace for the Palestinian people."

Veolia, deducing from the above, is assisting the Israeli government in building a light railway system in occupied east Jerusalem to help facilitate the transport of goods and services to and from the illegal settlements in the occupied West Bank. This is in direct contravention of the 4th Geneva Convention, - "The Occupying Power shall not deport or transfer parts of its own civilian population into the territory it occupies."

Does this Convention (and countless UN resolutions) mean anything to Veolia? And if it did, why does Veolia continue to work with the Apartheid Israeli government? Yet certain West Midland councils are still pouring millions of pounds of taxpayers money into Veolia. The photograph above was taken Saturday last in Birmingham UK and our firemen did their honourable duty.

Company Secretary of Veolia,

Do you have a white beard and possess a flare for being an anti-solidarity, solidarity activist?
