On Saturday 20th August Palestine solidarity activists from Ireland and the UK will take the Boycott Israeli Blood Diamonds campaign to the centre of London’s diamond district to educate shoppers and jewellers about the trade in Israeli blood diamond.

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”.
