Greece bids for role in Israeli settler railway

Encouraged by the Greek government, state-owned public transport firm STASY is bidding for a role in the Jerusalem light rail, which links Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank.

This would make the firms – and the Greek state – complicit in Israel’s illegal colonization.

Greek and Israeli transport ministers signed an agreement to cooperate in transport sectors in 2017.

This came after a summit between the leaders of Israel, Greece and Cyprus aimed at drawing the countries closer together.

Lawmakers in Greece’s nominally left-wing ruling party Syriza are demanding to know why the government is supporting a Greek role in Israel’s colonial expansion.

Metro workers union SELMA has also denounced STASY for its plan to bid for a role in the construction, operation and maintenance of the Israeli project.
