investment firm serving over 300 Quaker institutions in the United States, has
dropped its holdings in Hewlett Packard and Veolia Environment, multinational
corporations that support Israel’s Occupation of the Palestinian
Packard was removed from Friends Fiduciary’s investments because they provide
information technology consulting services to the Israeli Navy, said Jeffery W.
Perkins, the Executive Director of Friends Fiduciary. Veolia Environment, the
world’s largest water privatization company, was removed because of
“environmental and social concerns.” According to Global Exchange, Veolia
provides segregated water services to Israeli settlers in the Palestinian
Territories and runs a large landfill in the occupied Jordan River valley." (thanks Redouane)
