Tell City Harvest: "Don't Whitewash Leviev's Abuses!"

A number of media reports say that Leviev is helping to fundraise for City Harvest.

Please send an email encouraging City Harvest to publicly disavow any connection with or funding from billionaire and human rights violator Lev Leviev.

News Update: The New Zealand Superannuation Fund, which invests money on behalf of New Zealand’s government, announced on December 12 that it has excluded from its $20 billion investment portfolio two Leviev companies, Africa Israel and its construction subsidiary Danya Cebus, due to “their involvement in the construction of Israeli settlements in the Occupied Palestinian Territories. The settlements have been cited as illegal under international law, and the Fund considers the companies’ involvement to be inconsistent with the United Nations Global Compact.”

Leviev’s companies have a well-documented history of building Israeli settlements on the agricultural land of West Bank Palestinian villages like Jayyous and Bil’in. In Africa, Leviev's companies have been accused of brutal human rights abuses, firing striking workers, illegal diamond smuggling, and dealing in conflict diamonds. More info is available by clicking on the links below to two letters that concerned activists and human rights organizations have already sent to City Harvest.


Thanks to everyone that participated.
