[Nationwide] ‘Boycott Israeli Goods’ day of action at Tesco stores (IPSC)
To coincide with the visit to Ireland by Riya Hassan of the Palestinian BDS National Committee, the Ireland-Palestine Solidairty Campaign has organsied a ‘Boycott Israeli Goods’ day of action on Saturday 26th September focusing on the chain retailer Tesco across the island of Ireland.
Tesco have been a particularly eager and egregious seller of Israeli products, especially fruit, potatoes and herbs – profits from which are funnelled back into the Israeli economy and used to fund the Israeli military’s frequent war crimes and continuing brutal occupation of Palestine. Hardly a week goes by when there is not some form of Israeli goods on sale in your local Tesco. We want to bring the message to Tesco that each Israeli product sold contributes to the oppression of the people of Palestine.
Tesco must stand on the right side of history – they must stop selling these items because every little helps Apartheid!
