This is great. Thanks Cockney Doll. From the look of the website, its very pro-Islam and anti Israel etc. But you wouldn’t know it from reading this article. It appears to be an unwitting admission of how much Israel produces. Meanwhile, a BDS of the Muslim world would be unnoticed if it wasn’t for gasoline, which is a western product anyway. They just happen to live on top of the oil.
From this site. Please click here to see it all as I have only reposted about half of it here.
By Tania Kepler – The city of Marrickville is the first municipality in Australia to support the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign. The city is now under attack, following the publication of a report saying that support for BDS could end up costing taxpayers $4 million.BDS protest – Archive
In December 2010 the local council in the Australian city of Marrickville became the first municipality in Australia to support the Palestinian initiated Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign, and “boycott all goods made in Israel and any sporting, institutional academic, government or institutional cultural exchanges.”
The city is now under attack, following the publication of a report saying that support for BDS could end up costing taxpayers $4 million. Marrickville Mayor Fiona Byrne has denied that would be the case.
The paper was written by the council’s manager of services, Gary Moore, who says that signing onto BDS will require the replacement of the municipality’s Hewlett Packard computers, Holden and Volvo cars, telephones and other equipment from Motorola and concrete from Fulton Hogan.
Mr. Moore’s report found the boycott measure would lead to “substantial” impacts on council’s operations. “Significant change would have to be planned for and managed to enable council operations to be maintained whilst new sets of providers of computer hardware, concrete, waste services, some vehicles and some other construction materials and consumables are obtained and existing contracts are completed/suspended,” the report said.
According to Moore’s report for the council, it would cost about $3 million to replace Hewlett Packard computer systems, $300,000 for new record-keeping software and $150,000 for new Motorola products.
