To increase the pressure for an end to the Israeli occupation of Palestinian Territories, and the removal of the separation wall and the illegal settlements, we will support a boycott (where trade union members should not put their own jobs at risk by refusing to deal with such products) of those goods and agricultural products that originate in illegal settlements -through developing an effective, targeted consumer-led boycott campaign working closely with the Palestine Solidarity Campaign -and campaign for disinvestment by companies associated with the occupation.
