Stop Trade With Settlements

Officially, the EU opposes annexation and considers illegal settlements in occupied territories an obstacle to international peace and stability.

However, as with many other cases, what the EU states is far from its practices. Trade is still allowed between the European Single Market and these settlements, making their existence not only viable, but economically profitable for the occupiers.

As war is waged in Ukraine, and other tragically less popular conflicts continue to rage in Palestine, Yemen, Mali and across the world, it is imperative that our movement does not support Europe’s legacy of hypocrisy.

This is why DiEM25 supports the creation of a law that will apply to EU relations with occupied territories anywhere, sending a powerful message around the world that the EU will no longer reward territorial aggression with trade and profits.
