Protest Against Israels Blood Diamonds - Hatton Garden, London 20 Aug 2011


MrAlexSeymour on Aug 20, 2011

Diamonds are Israel's most important export commodity, accounting for over 30% of Israel's exports. Revenue from the Israeli diamond industry generates about $1 billion in funding for the Israeli military each year. When someone buys a diamond processed in Israel some of their money ends up funding war crimes and crimes against humanity in Palestine. Despite this, Jewellers continue to facilitate the trade in Israeli blood diamonds and have introduced a bogus "system of warranties" in an attempt to convince shoppers that they are "conflict free". This demonstration is an attempt to raise awareness amongst the general public about who benefits when they buy their loved one a diamond. Why not buy them some cosmetics from Lush and take them on a holiday to Norway instead.
