#BDS: Boycott #Israel campaign targets London's Hatton Gardens

Boycott Israel campaign targets London's Hatton Gardens

"London's Hatton Gardens is being targeted this weekend to highlight the deceptions of the Kimberley Process, which tracks the trading of rough diamonds for illicit purposes but excludes Israeli Blood Diamonds.

The international Boycott, disinvestments and Sanctions (BDS) campaign is being joined by Palestinian groups to raise awareness about Israel's huge diamond industry funding for its illegal occupation and human rights abuse.

Sean Clinton, who has been leading the Boycott Israeli Diamonds campaign in Ireland, said that both jewellers and the public at large were being targeted at Hatton Gardens on Saturday because it was “one of the major hubs of the global diamond industry.”
