Challenge the supermarkets about the following:
? "supermarkets are known to be trading with Israeli companies, because the labeling on products tells us so."
? "you must end business with Israeli companies that are profiting from Israeli occupation of Palestinian land, and Israel?s apartheid policies."
? "Israeli export companies known to be supplying British supermarkets like yours include: Carmel Agrexco, Arava and Mehadrin Tnuport Export (MTEX)."
? "All these Israeli companies are profiting from Israel?s violations of international law, making its UK trading partners such as your supermarket complicit."DRESS UP
Wear your ?Boycott Israeli Goods? badges with pride! Keep on wearing them! Israel has been in the news so much recently (for murdering civilians on the Gaza Flotilla, etc. etc.) that the general public are noticing badges, and now is the time to tell people about the boycott, in whatever way we can. Wear badges; give out badges on the street; call on all your supporters to wear badges!
