SPSC Protest at Wood Group's AGM in Aberdeen: 10am, Wednesday May 14th
Join us on May the 14th in Aberdeen to challenge Wood Group's ongoing complicity in Israel's occupation and dispossession of Palestinians.
Wood Group is an Aberdeen-based company that has recently built a massive power station in Israel that will provide 8% of Israel's electricity. Amongst the confirmed recipients of this electricity are the Israeli Ministry of 'Defence'- responsible for massacres in Gaza, torture, imprisonment without trial, and daily human rights abuses.
The electricity will also power Mekerot, the Israeli state water company, responsible for enforcing water apartheid, and Keter Plastic's factory in an illegal Israeli settlement in the occupied Palestinian territories.
The power station is located about 10km north of the Gaza Strip: Wood Group is providing state of the art energy technology to Israel while the apartheid state enforces its brutal siege of the Gaza Strip. Restrictions on fuel, electricity, and materials for essential maintenance mean that Gaza is forced to endure daily and lengthy blackouts, wreaking havoc on all aspects of life including health, education and sanitation.
Wood Group has plans to expand its operations in Israel: to increase the company's profits whilst Palestinians are denied their rights, Israeli apartheid continues, and the Gaza Strip is strangled.
Join us to protest at Wood Group's AGM to make it clear that there cannot be 'business as usual' in Israel as long as Palestinians are denied justice.
The Wood Group AGM will take place at 15 Justice Mill Lane, Wood Group's offices in the centre of Aberdeen. Join us outside the AGM at 10am for our demonstration, making it clear to shareholders the injustice of perpetuating Israel occupation and apartheid. Wood Group should not be playing a role in the denial of Palestinan human rights. Let's make a noise about it!!
The demo and other solidarity actions will run until 4pm.
