BDS campaign enters mainstream discourse as St. Louis mayoral candidates take sides over city Veolia contract
On January 16, 2013 a diverse group of 60 Palestinian rights organizers; environmental activists; workers; civil rights leaders; veterans; local business owners; students; members of the local Muslim, Christian, and Jewish communities; and other concerned citizens packed a meeting in the St. Louis City Hall to show opposition to a proposed city contract with Veolia Water. Two mayoral candidates on the 3-person board that considers public contracts took opposite sides over the contract, prompting the third member to call for a public hearing for testimonies from local citizens regarding Veolia.
On Wednesday, December 19 at a standing-room only meeting in the mayor’s office for the St. Louis City Board of Estimate & Apportionment, the Board declined to approve a city contract with Veolia Water, putting off the vote until there can be a full investigation into the company’s history. The decision came following an activist campaign highlighting the company’s involvement with ethnic discrimination in Palestine.
