Through taking part in and supporting new fossil fuel projects in the Middle East, Western powers like the EU and US destabilize the region and entrench Israeli apartheid regime, including the legitimization of decades of de facto and planned de jure annexation of Palestinian territory. The US, the EU, Italian companies and more are supporting gas and electricity projects that solidify Israel as a regional energy supplier; giving it a geopolitical stronghold. Not only are people’s lives and the stability of the region threatened by these energy interventions, but food security, dwelling security and more are threatened by the climate crisis that these energy projects escalate. Hear from campaigners from Palestine and Europe about how neoliberalism neocolonialism and colonialism play out in huge energy projects like the EuroAsia Interconnector and Eastmed pipeline.
