Veolia and Alstom continue to abet Israel's rights violations

Despite mounting pressure to withdraw from the light rail project in Jerusalem designed to serve the needs of Israel's illegal settlements…Veolia is set to be highly involved in the project for the next five years…to support its new Israeli partner, the Dan Bus Company … Veolia has been pressured to end its involvement…by several financial institutions…because the rail will normalize the illegal annexation of Palestinian East Jerusalem … Veolia recently attempted to pacify concerns …expressing the company's commitment to operate the Jerusalem light rail on "a clear, non-discriminatory policy based on free access for all parts of the population”… statements made by a City Pass spokesperson reveal that Veolia is aware that the light rail service will be discriminatory… legal action in France…against Alstom and Alstom Transport continues. [also refers to Connex, part of Veolia]
