Top UK architects accuse Israelis of oppression

I just caught this interesting post on Sabbah’s blog. A number of high profile names in British architecture has signed a petition organised by the group Architects and Planners for Justice in Palestine. The Guardian Unlimited, is running a story on that.

Leading British architects have accused their counterparts in Israel of complicity in schemes that contribute to the “social, political and economic oppression of Palestinians”.

The architects, including Will Alsop, Terry Farrell, Richard MacCormac, Royal Institute of British Architects president Jack Pringle and president-elect Sunand Prasad, have signed a petition organised by the group Architects and Planners for Justice in Palestine.”

APJP asserts that the actions of our fellow professionals working with these enterprises are clearly unethical, immoral and contravene universally recognised professional codes of conduct,” a spokesman said. “We ask the Israeli Association of United Architects (IAUA) to meet their professional obligations to declare their opposition to this inhuman occupation.”

    I find it very interesting. The British are the ones who made of Palestine in the first place. Then they jumped ship. There should be a committee for colonial restitution, I think.
