Verviers follows the Belgian city of Liége, whose city council last month decided to end ties with Israel, citing its regime of “apartheid, colonization and military occupation.”
Also in April, Oslo (Norway) decided to exclude companies that directly or indirectly contribute to Israel’s illegal settlement enterprise, and in February the mayor of Barcelona (Catalonia, Spanish state) decided to suspend institutional ties with apartheid Israel.
Elsewhere, the mayor of Belém (Brazil) has recently declared the city an Apartheid Free Zone.
The Palestinian BDS National Committee (BNC), the largest coalition in Palestinian society, hailed Verviers decision and applauded the tireless work of Belgian civil society that has made this possible.
It also called on cities worldwide to follow the inspiring examples of Verviers, Liége, Oslo, Barcelona, and Bélem by severing ties with apartheid Israel in support of the Palestinian struggle to dismantle Apartheid.
