A fellow boycotter shows a simple and effective method of direct action.
- They popped into their local Asda this evening, certain that the store is selling a variety of Israeli products grown on occupied Palestinian land.
- They pick up a basket, and head to the fruit and veg section of the store. There they inspect the labels on each of the fresh produce, looking for the country of origin; anything labelled Israel or West Bank is placed in the basket.
- When the basket is filled to the brim, they simply leave it in another part of the store. The theory is if the products are not on the shelf they can’t be bought by unsuspecting shoppers, indirectly funding massacres being carried out in Palestine.
Please note, the products should not be sold in the stores in the first instance, as they are likely to be breaking the law by selling goods produced in Israeli settlements which are illegal under international law. They may also be profiting from the fruit and veg planted by palestinians. Please avoid funding the terrorist entity known as Israel and share pics of your mini protest!
