Pressure on apartheid works

Yet more evidence that pressure on corporates that collude with the illegal occupation in Palestine can be convinced to change their ways:

The Belgian-French financial group Dexia announced it will no longer finance Israeli settlements in the occupied Palestinian territories through its Israeli branch, Dexia Israel.

The announcement was the culmination of a months-long campaign in Belgium, supported by NGOs, political parties, local authorities, trade unions and other organizations to halt the financing of settlements being constructed in the West Bank including East Jerusalem.

In the announcement Dexia’s management stated that financing Israeli settlements is against the bank’s code of ethics and it will stop giving loans for settlement construction for this reason.
