ICBU Condemns the Participation of the State of Apartheid Israel in Expo 2020 Dubai

The International Campaign to Boycott UAE (ICBU) condemned the participation of the apartheid state in the Dubai Expo from October 2020 to April 2021, where Israeli President Benjamin Netanyahu welcomed his country’s participation in the Dubai Expo, describing the participation as another expression of Israel’s rising status in the world and the region. ICBU called on the world to boycott the Expo in Dubai because of the human rights committed by the UAE and its sponsors, such as the apartheid state, which violates the rights of Palestinians and abuses them on a daily basis.

The campaign called on the International Bureau of Exhibitions or the organization of the international exhibitions to withdraw the organization of Expo 2020 from the UAE because of the violations committed by the UAE in its war in Yemen against children, women and the elderly, especially forced disappearances, torture, detention and murder.

The international campaign called for the intervention of the United Nations, the European Parliament, human rights institutions and the international community to stop human rights violations committed by the UAE authorities in Yemen and to force the authorities in the UAE to respect human rights laws.

The campaign also called on all countries that respect human rights laws and the free world to boycott the UAE because they violate human rights on a daily basis, whether in Libya or the war in Yemen or with neighbouring countries, citizens or residents.

ICBU said it was launched in the light of the endless violations of human rights practiced by the UAE, as well as its war crimes in Yemen and violations of workers’ rights, as well as the fact that the UAE is the centre of modern slavery. The United Arab Emirates is today one of the leading countries in trafficking in human beings and is one of the main supporters of terrorist groups in Syria and other parts of the Middle East.
