Trondheim, Norway’s third largest city, has decided to boycott goods and services that originate in Jewish settlements in the West Bank.
A resolution passed at a city council meeting earlier this month accuses Israel of continuing “to aggressively pursue its policy of occupation.”
“Illegal settlements are expanding, the construction of the wall continues, Palestinians are subjected to daily harassment and face major obstacles in their daily lives. This is a policy that Trondheim Municipality cannot support,” the resolution noted. “The municipality will therefore refrain from purchasing goods and services produced in the occupied territories.”
The council also called on the city’s residents to personally adopt the boycott as well.Thursday, December 01, 2016
