Amnesty International Campaign: 50th Anniversary Of Israel's Occupation Of East Jerusalem, The West Bank, Golan Heights And Gaza

EDM number 19 in 2017-18, proposed by Chris Stephens on 21/06/2017.
Categorised under the topics of Human rights, International law and Middle East.

That this House endorses Amnesty lnternational's newly launched global campaign calling on governments around the world to ban imports from illegal Israeli settlements; notes that this campaign coincides with 50th anniversary of Israel's occupation of East Jerusalem, the West Bank, the Golan Heights and Gaza; expresses grave concern at the UK's complicity in a multi-million pound enterprise that fuels mass human rights violations against Palestinians and the legal implications this has under international law; calls on the Government to preclude all trade, imports and investment in Israel's illegal settlement enterprise by adopting a total ban on trade and imports that are proven to either originate or are tied to Israel's illegal settlements in territories under Israel's belligerent military occupation; further calls on the Government to ensure that the UK acts in compliance with its obligations under international laws and treaties which require the Government, along with all third parties, to ensure respect for international law and not recognise an illegal situation arising from breaches, such as Israel's illegal settlement enterprise, and refrain from any activity that would render aid or assistance to such grave and severe breaches of peremptory norms of international law; and asks the Government to demand that Israel dismantle the settlements and fully withdraw from the territories occupied in 1967.

This motion has been signed by a total of 14 MPs.
