Oban Concern for Palestine are happy to re-post call by Brighton & Hove Palestine Campaign about Water meters:
We’re telling Southern Water: We DON’T want water meters made by an Israeli company!
Southern Water are carrying out a compulsory water meter installation for all their customers, and the meters are being supplied by Israeli company Arad.
Like many Israeli companies, Arad is deeply complicit in the occupation of Palestine. To find out more, read the Corporate Watch article “Arad: Supplying water meters to Sussex while helping bleed Palestine dry”.
Brighton & Hove PSC have sent a letter to the Southern Water CEO. We’ve also drafted a sample letter that you can use to inform Southern Water that you do not want them to install one of the Arad meters at your house.
Southern Water will be putting up notices on lampposts in areas of the city due for meter installation.
And incidentally…we’ve produced some self-adhesive stickers using [an] eye-catching design […], which can be put to a number of uses if you wish to support the campaign. Contact us if you’d like some of the stickers.
