Action against Veolia at Science Oxford Live

Thanks to all of you who supported our action against Veolia at Science Oxford over the past 7 weeks, and special thanks to those of
 you who came out week after week (even in dreadful weather on a couple
of occasions).  It was great to have a united joint effort with Women
in Black and the students' Palestine Society.
All that is left to do is to make sure that the Natural History Museum
and Science Oxford do not take sponsorship from Veolia in future.  If
you haven't already contacted them about this it is not too late!!

Defence for Children International: Report on Palestinian Child Prisoners

Over 700 Palestinian children a year are arrested by Israeli forces. a large majority of whom are arrested in their homes at night or in the early hours of the morning, and suffer physical violence during arrest or while incarcerated. 

On 20 March 2012, DCI-Palestine launched a new report: Bound, Blindfolded and Convicted: Children held in military detention. to highlight the mistreatment of these children and to call for urgent changes.
