Veolia Boycott - more info below

Palestine was so grand
Before Israel took our land
Conquerors brought us to our knees
Building settler colonies
Needed bus lines and waste disposal
Veolia made a proposal

Veolia, (Stop it now)
Veolia, (You know how)
Veolia, Veolia

Buses run to settler abodes
On those Jewish-only roads
The West Bank they subdivide
I believe that's apartheid
Tearing through farm and town
Tearing Palestine down

Settlements dump their waste
On the people they've displaced
Demonstrating their bad will
Veolia runs the landfill
In the stolen Jordan Valley
That is why we march and rally

Contracts with settlements
They make bad business sense
They should take human rights courses
'Stead of stealing resources
This aggression we detest
So we'll just have to divest

Lost contracts in Ireland
Netherlands, and in Sweden
Australia and UK
And some Swiss banks said, not ok
And that's just the short list
Didn't mention the Methodists

Grass roots pressure has prevailed
Forced to pull out of light rail
Stealing land in Jerusalem
Which the whole world has condemned
Dispossession's not benign
Freedom will come for Palestine

Bus Services
Veolia operates bus lines through the occupied West Bank, connecting illegal settlements to Israel. These buses do not stop in any Palestinian towns; they use Israeli-only roads, confiscated from the Palestinians for the exclusive use of Israeli settlers. The West Bank has been cut into pieces by these roads, which have not only decimated Palestinian towns and villages by stealing their land for construction but have also restricted the right of passage between Palestinian communities. A separate but unequal Palestinian road system is made up of low grade roads snaking under the Israelis highways, cut by checkpoints and physical barriers.

Tovlan Landfill
The Tovlan landfill is owned and operated by T.M.M. Integrated Recycling Services, a company that is owned by a Veolia subsidiary: Veolia Environmental Services Israel. Veolia collects refuse from illegal settlements at the Tovlan landfill site in the occupied Jordan Valley, using captured Palestinian land and natural resources for the needs of Israeli settlements.
