[Dun Laoghaire] Stop Cementing Misery: Protest at the CRH Annual General Meeting

category dublin | crime and justice | event notice author Monday April 28, 2014 23:09author by ispc Report this post to the editors

Wed, 7 May 2014, 9:30 Royal Marine Hotel, Marine Road, Dun Laoghaire, Co. Dublin

On the morning of Wednesday 7th May Irish multinational CRH will hold their Annual General Meeting in the Royal Marine Hotel, Marine Road, Dun Laoghaire, Co. Dublin. The Ireland-Palestine Solidarity Campaign plan a protest outside the venue. Press reports suggest that CRH are thinking about ditching their toxic Israeli assets which are involved in building the illegal apartheid wall and settlements in Israeli-occupied Palestine.

This is a call out to all solidarity activists to turn up on the morning and let them know that you think that would be a good idea!

Details:

What: The AGM is on the morning of Wednesday 7th May in Dun Laoghaire.

When and where to meet: 9.30am opposite the gates of the Royal Marine Hotel on Marine Road, Dun Laoghaire

What to wear: Hopefully it will not rain but be prepared just in case. It is a windy road so bring warm clothes.

How long: 2 hours approx.

Who to bring: Please try to bring as many people as you can!

Why: The IPSC is organising this protest because CRH owns 25% of the Israeli company Mashav Initiative and Development Ltd which, in turn, owns Israel’s sole cement producer Nesher Cement Enterprises Ltd. Nesher provide up to 90% of all cement sold in Israel, including cement used in the construction of Israel’s illegal separation wall in Palestine and illegal settlements and checkpoints. We are calling on CRH to end its shameful investment in Israel and to stop profiting from the occupation of Palestine by divesting from its Israeli interests.

Over the past five years the issue of CRH’s investment in Israel has been raised in the AGM proceedings by IPSC members who are also shareholders in the company. In 2012 year the IPSC presented a 10,000-signature strong petition to the CRH Board calling for divestment from Israel, and filed a complaint with the OECD. CRH has yet to take action, though press reports suggest that they are thinking about ditching their toxic Israeli assets. Come along let them know that you think that would be a good idea!
