Two new fact sheets have been released. The first, âThe Palestinian economy â Occupation, de-development and normalisation,â gives a concise summary of Stop the Wall’s economic analysis, within which we clarify how the dominant approach to investment and development in Palestine serves to strengthen the Wall, checkpoints and military closures, creating âsustainableâ ghettos in the West Bank. Clarified are the roles of the PNA, the World Bank and DFID (and other international donors), along with three key development projects in Bethlehem, Jenin and the Jordan Valley that evidence the dangers inherent in this approach to development.

The second, âBoycott Elbit Systems!â turns the spotlight to Elbit Systems, one of the largest Israeli security and defense firms, specializing in military electronics, surveillance systems, UAVs and homeland security systems. The company provides both UAVs and other military technology for Occupation forces as well as security systems for the Wall and settlements. Elbit has major subsidiaries across the globe, and any BDS campaign against arms trade must take the company into account. Download this one here.
