The Swedish clothing chain H&M is currently establishing stores throughout Israel. The second store recently opened in Jerusalem, coinciding with Israels announcement of 1600 new illegal housing units in occupied East Jerusalem.
H&M claims to act by the Global Compact, through which, amongst other things, it undertakes to make sure their own corporations are not complicit in human rights abuses. By developing business interests in Israel, H&M are making themselves complicit in the illegal and immoral practices of the Israeli state.
Together with people of conscience in Palestine, Israel, and all over the world, we call upon H&M to take a moral stand on the issue of Israels human rights abuses and international law violations. We demand that H&M takes urgent steps to withdraw from all activity in Israel until such time that the country respects international law and the human rights of the Palestinian people.
