Open protest letter addressed to the Robert-Bosch-Stiftung

Dear Friends,

As you know, the Palestine solidarity movement has made great progress internationally in ripping the green cloak from the Jewish National Fund. We have together brought about a public discussion of the JNF’s role in the dispossession and racial discrimination against Palestinians in the state of Israel. But the JNF is fighting back and is seeking an influential partner in order to implement its aims.

The wealthy and internationally well-known charity, the Robert-Bosch-Stiftung in Stuttgart is apparently to act as a door-opener in Africa and in Arab countries – that is in regions where people have plenty of experience with the human rights violations of the state of Israel such as the ethnic cleansing of Palestinians and its close cooperation with the former apartheid regime in South Africa.

We from the Palestine Solidarity Committee in Stuttgart have written an open protest letter addressed to the Robert-Bosch-Stiftung and the state economy minister of Baden-Württemberg, Nils Schmid (Social Democratic Party) who supports cooperation between the Bosch-Stiftung, business people and the JNF.

We need to send a strong, collective message.

We ask you to support our action with your signature.
