Despite the current Lock down and closure of the Friends Meeting House, our talks on human rights around the world will continue online using Zoom. Contact the Chair on email firstname.lastname@example.org for details of the Zoom meeting and to request an invitation to join in.
On Thursday 14 May at 7.30pm, Peter Frankental will speak on "Should companies steer clear of Israeli settlements in Occupied Palestinian Territory?"
For this talk Peter Frankental, Amnesty's Economics Related Programme Director, will speak about whether companies can respect human rights while doing business with Israeli settlements in the Occupied Palestinian Territories (OPT) which are illegal under international law.
Amnesty International has published a report on how online tourism companies promote accommodation and activities in the settlements to the detriment of Palestinians.
Amnesty has also published a briefing for companies addressing the question of whether they can do business there while respecting human rights.
Further Talks which may also be online via Zoom include:-
We hope you will join us. Zoom is easy to use and free for less than a hundred people so ideal for our talks.
