Act now: Tell BT to hang up on the Occupation

bt_logoBT is complicit in Israel's crimes against the Palestinian people.

BT has recently allowed Israeli company Bezeq into its exclusive BT alliance club. Bezeq provides telecommunications support for Israel's illegal settlements in the Occupied Palestinian Territories. BT will remain complicit in Israel's breaches of international law unless it cuts all ties with Bezeq International.

Using the form below, write to BT Chief Executive Ian Livingston to demand that the company hang up on the Occupation.

Dear Ian Livingston,

I am writing to express my concern about the relationship between BT and Bezeq International whom you have recently allowed to join your prestigious BT Alliance programme with ‘Gold Partner’ status.

Bezeq International is a wholly owned subsidiary of Bezeq, which provides telecommunication services to illegal Israeli settlements in the Occupied Palestinian Territories. Israel’s settlements are illegal under the Fourth Geneva Convention, which forbids population transfer into territory occupied in war. They are widely condemned as obstacles to peace by the international community, including the British government, which has repeatedly called on Israel to halt its settlement expansion plan.

BT is a signatory to the UN Global Compact, which commits the company to ensuring that it is not complicit in human rights abuses. The company’s internal business principles also include specific commitments to upholding human rights.

By allowing Bezeq International into the BT Alliance programme, BT is supporting the infrastructure which enables illegal Israeli settlements to function. BT remains complicit in Israel’s breaches of international law unless it cuts all ties with Bezeq International.

As a supporter of War on Want, I urge BT to cut its partnership with Bezeq International and end its complicity in the illegal Occupation of Palestinian land.

I look forward to your response.

Yours sincerely
