CRH criticised over Israeli barrier
Published: 21 July 2004

The Ireland-Palestine Solidarity Campaign has reiterated its call for a boycott of Cement Roadstone Holdings over its alleged involvement in Israel’s “security barrier”.  Amnesty International has claimed that a company partly owned by CRH is supplying cement for use in the controversial barrier.  IPSC spokeswoman Treasa Ni Cheannabhain said: “Any Irish company that would be involved in any way with this wall should immediately cut their ties in the interests of humanity.”  Last night, the United Nations General Assembly adopted a resolution urging Israel to comply with a world court ruling ordering the demolition of the barrier
