Dump-Derail-Drown Veolia Campaign

Dump Veolia is the flagship global BDS campaign and has enjoyed successes around the world. Veolia is a French multinational corporation with many ties to the Israeli occupation. It services illegal Israeli settlements by operating a landfill and wastewater treatment plant, and is involved in the construction and operation of a tramway linking West Bank settlements to East Jerusalem, further entrenching the occupation. Coalition member groups and others around the world are working to Stop Veolia contracts and pass resolutions to divest from this corporation until it ends its complicity in the occupation.

UPDATE: In September 2013, Veolia Transdev sold off all bus lines operating throughout Israel/Palestine -- a historic BDS win! Please note that some of the content in this section was created before this significant development, and may include reference to the bus lines.
