The writing is on the Apartheid Wall for CRH
Graffiti artists in Palestine have made it clear to Irish cement multinational CRH what they think of the activities of their Israeli subsidiary Mashav. Mashav, in which CRH holds a 25% stake, own Nesher cement – Israel’s sole cement manufacturing company. Nesher cement is used in the construction of the Apartheid Wall, Israeli settlements and related infrastructure, all declared illegal by the International Court of Justice in its 2004 ruling. CRH is aiding and abetting, and literally concretising, Israel’s apartheid policies against the Palestinian people. For more about CRH’s involvement, please see this section of our website.
On Saturday 7th April, the following image of the IPSC’s CRH Divestment Campaign logo appeared on the Apartheid Wall near the Qalandiya checkpoint outside Ramallah. The painting was briefly interrupted when the Israeli military fired upon the artists. The IPSC would like to thank the brave artists who risked injury to get the message out there.
Please take the time to sign the IPSC’s global petition to CRH plc asking them to divest from their Apartheid-enabling Israeli interests – please click here to sign.
