Voor de lieve vrede: kijk op (http://popularstruggle.org), rubriek OECD en
schrijf een brief!
“Join us in calling on Angel Gurria, the chairman of the OECD, to cancel
the organization's tourism conference in Jerusalem and withdraw its
support of Israeli colonialism.
Despite Israel’s persistent violations of human rights and disregard for
International law, the OECD – whose member countries include the majority
of the world richest countries – granted Israel membership on May 27th
On the 20-22 of October 2010 The OECD plans to hold its bi-annual tourism
conference. This year's summit, which usually takes place in Paris, is
planned to be held in Jerusalem - a city whose indigenous Palestinian
residents suffer from systemic discrimination and expulsion.
Tourism plays an important role in Israel’s colonization of occupied East
Jerusalem. The state and right wing settler organizations cooperate in
expelling Palestinians residents from East Jerusalem neighborhoods such as
Silwan and Sheikh Jarrah for the creation of colonies combined with
biblical theme parks for tourists.

Jerusalem. Below is a suggested template letter we have drafted. Please
