A Child’s Cry: Stop Poisoning Palestine’s Schools
To the European Union’s High Representative for Foreign Affairs, Federica Mogherini:
We, the citizens of Palestine, want our children to live a happy and healthy life. Israel’s chemical plant in Tulkarem is spreading toxic smog and waste that is making our children ill. We call on you to impose a ban on the products of these factories to prevent them from entering the EU, Israel’s biggest market, until the plant shuts down its facilities, which are located illegally on Palestinian land.

The pollution emitted by Israel's chemical plants has turned Tulkarem’s eastern palestinian neighborhoods into sick ghost towns. But the Israeli company can only survive if it keeps access to one of its biggest markets, the EU -- this is our best opportunity to stop this poisonous factory. Europe has strict environmental regulations and public and media pressure can persuade key decision-makers to impose a ban on these chemical products, paving the way for the closure of the factory.
There is no time to lose -- the new EU foreign policy chief is sensitive to our plight, and if enough Palestinian voices call on her and other key leaders to ban the import of these chemicals, we can trigger a media storm impossible to ignore.
