Prevent Alstom From Building The Haramain Express Railway! End collusion with Israeli apartheid! sign now

Saudi Arabia awarded French company Alstom a multi-million dollar contract for the construction of Haramain Express Railway, to link the holy cities of Makkah and Madina. Alstom is in violation of international law for its part in the construction of the Jerusalem Light Rail, which will link illegal Israeli settlements in the occupied Palestinian territory (including East Jerusalem) with the city of Jerusalem. The construction of the light rail is part of a wider Israeli policy to ethnically cleanse the Palestinians from Jerusalem and turn permanent the illegal occupation of the city.

The decision by the Saudi Arabian authorities is in violation of its own international commitments. The Arab League barred member states from dealing with companies involved in the construction of Jerusalem Light Rail project. The Saudi contract sends a signal of approval for Alstom's actions in Jerusalem and highlights the lack of integrity of the Haramain project: the Saudi Arabian government has chosen to link two of Islam's holiest cities by sponsoring the colonization of another.

Across the world a divestment campaign is taking pace against Alstom and its partner company Veolia, with victories in Sweden and France. In 2006, Dutch ASN Bank took the responsible decision to divest from the project. Alstom and Veolia are accused by Palestinian civil society, represented by the BDS National Committee, BNC, of complicity in grave violation of international law and Palestinian rights for their role in the JLR project. Despite the pressure, the two companies have refused to end their participation in the project. With construction at an advanced stage, Alstom and Veolia are guilty of actively colluding with Israeli apartheid.

We, the undersigned, demand that the Saudi Arabian authorities immediately cancel all contracts with Alstom and Veolia and that an ethical company is chosen for the task of building the railway between the holy cities of Makkah and Madina.

منحت المملكة العربية السعودية ملايين الدولارات في صفقة لشركة "آلستوم" الفرنسية لبناء مشروع قطار الحرمين السريع ، للربط بين المدينتين المقدستين مكة المكرمة والمدينة المنورة. الستوم" خالفت القانون الدولي ببنائها خط التراموي "قطارات القدس الخفيفة" ، والذي يربط القدس الشرقية المحتلة بالقدس الغربية وما حولهما من مستعمرات إسرائيلية. بناء هذه القطارات جزء من السياسة الاسرائيلية التوسعية ضد الفلسطينيين لطردهم من القدس وفصل القدس عن الضفة الغربية وضمها لإسرائيل كأمر واقع.

بهذا القرار خالفت السلطات السعودية التزاماتها الدولية، حيث إن جامعة الدول العربية منعت الدول الأعضاء التعامل مع الشركات العاملة في القدس المحتلة لبناء مشروع "قطارات القدس الخفيفة". إبرام العقد بين السعودية و "آلستوم" يشير إلى عدم ممانعة السعودية لتنفيذ مشروع "آلستوم" في القدس المحتلة ، وكما يدل على عدم مصداقيتها في مشروع الحرمين : لأن الحكومة السعودية اختارت لربط اثنين من أقدس المدن الإسلامية شركة تساهم في رعاية ومساندة احتلال دولة لدولة أخرى

فى جميع أنحاء العالم بدأت الحملة ضد "آلستوم" وشريكها شركة "فيوليا" ، حيث تحققت انتصارات في السويد وفرنسا. في عام ٢٠٠٦ قرر بنك "أي أس أن" الهولندي الانسحاب من الاستثمار في هذا المشروع. بالرغم من الضغوط العالمية ، رفضت الشركتان وضع حد لمشاركتهما في المشروع. في الواقع قإن البناء في مرحلة متقدمة ، و"آلستوم" و"فيوليا" مذنبتان بالتواطؤ مع اسرائيل بنشاط الفصل العنصري.

نحن الموقعون أدناه ، نطالب السلطات السعودية بإلغاء جميع الروابط مع "فيوليا" و"الستوم" فورا واختيار شركة تتبع أخلاقيات العمل والمهنة لمهمة بناء مشروع قطار الحرمين الشريفين
