Profiting from the OccupationThis report reveals how high street names such as Tesco, Sainsbury's, Waitrose, Connex and Caterpillar are implicated in Israel's war crimes against the Palestinian people.

  • Train operator Connex is constructing a light rail system which will link illegal settlements in occupied East Jerusalem to the Israeli side of the city, slicing across occupied Palestinian territory and threatening any final agreement on the status of the city;
  • Supermarkets such as Tesco, Sainsbury's and Waitrose stock wines, snacks and other goods which are produced in illegal settlements in the Occupied West Bank and Golan Heights but sold as 'Made in Israel';
  • Construction companies such as Caterpillar, Volvo and Daewoo supply bulldozers which are used by the Israeli army in the construction of its illegal Separation Wall, as well as in the demolition of Palestinian homes.

Israel's actions have been identified as war crimes under the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court, as well as being in contravention of the Fourth Geneva Convention. Yet the UK has done nothing to bring Israel to account for its actions, or to stop British companies from supporting the Occupation.
