Israeli 'blood diamond' Australia protest

Australia House, London. Fri 8 Dec 2017


 The campaigners put up banners in front of Australia House

 and one on the pavement

 A man comes to argue with the protesters

 

 

 

 

 And they have two Palestinian flags on a tall pole

 in front of the Australian flag on the High Commission

 One with the message 'Free Palestine' and the other 'Boycott Israel'

 

 

 

 

 

 Israel's largest industry is diamond cutting, with a 26% share of Israel's manufacturing exports

 and the Israeli diamond industry contributes about $1 billion annually to the Israeli military and security industries

 One company, BSG (Beny Steinmetz Group), used to boast on the web of its contributions to the Givati Brigade

 accused of war crimes and possible crimes against humanity by the United Nations Human Rights Council.

 

 BSG was renamed Diacore shortly after these allegations were made public.
