Following a two-year campaign by the No to Veolia Action Group(No2VAG), the multinational Veolia which profits from and supports the Israeli occupation of Palestine lost a £4.7 billion contract with the North London Waste Authority (NWLA) which represents seven north London boroughs.
The No2VAG campaign won in spite of opposition, sabotage and interference, first of all from Zionist organisations: ironically, local anger at their gross manipulation generated much publicity which contributed to pressure on Veolia and the NWLA. After spending millions to secure the contract Veolia was forced to withdraw.
We need to know how this campaign, inspired by the Palestinian struggle, won this massive victory. Already it has encouraged similar campaigns in South Wales and Davis, California (which won a $325 million victory). Come and hear how we can kick out Veolia from every corner of the UK and the world.
