The EU opposes annexation and considers illegal settlements as an obstacle to international peace and stability. But even though illegal settlements constitute a war crime, the EU keeps trading with them. That trade allows for profits from annexation and contributes to the expansion of illegal settlements across the world.
Our law will end trade with settlement businesses once and for all. It will apply to current conflicts such as Israeli settlements in Occupied Palestine. And it will also send a powerful signal around the world that the EU will no longer reward territorial aggression with trade and profits.

About the Petition
We seek to regulate commercial transactions with Occupant’s entities based or operating in occupied territories by withholding products originating from there from entering the EU market.
The Commission, as Guardian of the Treaties, has to ensure consistency of Union’s policy and compliance with fundamental rights and international law in all areas of EU law, including CCP.
It must propose legal acts based on the Common Commercial Policy to prevent EU legal entities from both importing products originating in illegal settlements in occupied territories and exporting to such territories, in order to preserve the integrity of the internal market and to not aid or assist the maintenance of such unlawful situations.
The initiative thus invites the Commission to submit a proposal for a legal act under the Common Commercial Policy which is general in nature and does not target a specific country or territory.
What you are signing?
The following petition text is the legal text under which the European Commission has recognized that it can pass a law to stop trade with businesses in illegal settlements, once and for all. Supporting this specific text will thus pave the way to stopping business in illegal settlements.
