The influential ‘Don’t Buy into the Occupation (DBIO)’ report highlights the extraordinary scale of investment by European financial institutions, including pension funds, in companies actively involved in the illegal Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank. These companies are contributing to a grave violation of international law and the abuse of Palestinian human rights, yet few investors take their responsibilities seriously and apply adequate investment screening and due diligence.

Trade unions can play an important role in pressuring those companies and institutions to divest from illegal Israeli settlement industry.

Check out our leaflet with concrete recommendations for trade unions and study cases from our members UNISON (UK) and FAGFORBUNDET ( Norwegian Union of Municipal and General Employees) about successful divestment campaigns. Read the leaflet in EN/ FR/ ES/ NL
