Elbit Systems, Bank Hapoalim, Bank Leumi, Mizrahi Tefahot, First International Bank of Israel and Israel Discount Bank all support Israel’s illegal settlements and associated infrastructure, in addition to the unlawful use of armed force against Palestinians. This makes AXA complicit in serious violations of international law. It also violates AXA’s own responsible investment policies. Send … Continue reading

Action Item: #ReclaimYourSpace – Stand against hate & support Palestinian freedom

Around the world the space for standing up for Palestinian freedom and rights is being shut down by those that oppose our shared values.

Attacks are moving from smear campaigns that fuel fear and hate to political and legal initiatives that are restricting freedom of speech and the right to hold those committing injustice accountable. This is happening in the US, Germany, France, UK and elsewhere in Europe – as … Continue reading
