[Dublin] Street action calling on jewellers to end the trade in blood diamonds from Israel
Diamonds are a cornerstone of the Israeli economy and a major source of funding for the nuclear-armed Israeli military regime. Israeli diamonds evade the strictures fo the Kimberley Process (KP) regulations which only apply to rough diamonds. America chairs the KP in 2012 and has already indicated they will not countenance a broadening of the definition of a “conflict diamond” to include cut and polished diamonds. Consumers are being conned as jewellers claim diamonds crafted in Israel are conflict free.
