Valladolid.- The City Council of Villanueva de Duero -a town of the Spanish province of Valladolid- has removed the Israeli bottled water Eden Springs Ltd. from all the municipal buildings. With this decision, the City Council joins to the International Movement of Boycott, Desinvestments and Sanctions (BDS) against the State of Israel. The City Council of Villanueva de Duero has taken this decision coinciding with the fifth anniversary of the International Movement of BDS.
That”s the second action of boycott against Israel in Valladolid in the last weeks. In the past month of June, the teachers and workers of the Nursing School of the University of Valladolid asked to the Direction to remove Eden from the bottled water vending machines. The Direction agreed to that request.
We, the Platform of Solidarity with Palestine-Valladolid, want to thank both institutions for their commitment and support to the Palestinian people”s cause. These actions of boycott mean a major boost to the International Movement of Boycott, Desinvestments and Sanctions against the State of Israel. Besides, we ask to all the people of Valladolid, trade unions, companies, institutions and civil service to join to the BDS.
In the province of Valladolid, we, the Platform of Solidarity with Palestine, have worked very hard this year on the International Movement of BDS. The boycott to Eden of Villanueva de Duero and the Nursing School are the result of this work.
