Wednesday 7th September at Uxbridge Magistrates Court
Join defendants at Uxbridge Magistrates Court (Near Uxbridge Tube) for
breakfast on the first day of their trial and support the campaign to sever
military, economic, cultural and academic ties with Israel while the
occupation of Palestine continues.
Following the ruling of the International Court of Justice in the Hague
that Israels building of a wall on Palestinian land was illegal, activists
from London and Brighton successfully blockaded the main Carmel-Agrexco
depot in the UK. This prevented tens of thousands of pounds worth of
agricultural produce from reaching its destination on British supermarket
Carmel is the main brand for Israeli agricultural exports and the company
is 50 per cent owned by the Israeli state. It exports goods from
settlements in the West Bank and Gaza in violation of the EU-Israel
The action at the depot led to the arrest of seven activists who had d-
locked themselves across the gates and prevented access to lorries. They
have all been charged with aggravated trespass: the prevention of lawful
activity. Their defence will challenge the legality of Carmel-Agrexcos
trade in the UK and is hoped to act as a springboard for the whole boycott
We invite you and your organisations to join us on the opening day of the
trial, wednesday 7th September at Uxbridge Magistrates Court, f in support
of the boycott campaign and in solidarity with the Palestinian struggle to
end the occupation.
