    British architects threaten Israeli boycott

    The Independent has this report:

    Architects and Planners for Justice in Palestine, whose members include Richard Rogers and the architectural critic Charles Jenckes, met for the first time last week in secret at the London headquarters of Lord Rogers' practice. He introduced the meeting, and the 60 attendees went on to condemn the illegal annexation of Palestinian land and the construction of the vast fence and concrete separation barrier running through the West Bank and Jerusalem. The group said that architects, planners and engineers working on Israeli projects in the occupied territories were "complicit in social, political and economic oppression", and "in violation of their professional code of ethics".

    I congratulate them for their condemnation, and just hope it might nudge more businesses and professions into following suit.

    But morals come pretty low on the list where money is concerned.

    Indeed, as i've posted elsewhere, unfortunately, capitalism does quite obviously have its flaws.
