Sainsburys
Sainsbury’s uses suppliers that trade in products from illegal Israeli settlements. Israeli settlements are built on stolen Palestinian land and are illegal under international law.
In April 2013, the Co-operative stated that in line with its ethical policy it would ‘no longer engage with any supplier of produce known to be sourcing from the Israeli settlements’.
Please ask Sainsbury’s to follow the Co-operative’s good example and to stoptrading with suppliers which profit from Israeli settlements. Call on the Sainsbury’s CEO to stop stocking goods from companies that do business with Israeli settlements.
Join the National Day of Action on the 1st March (you can join the event on facebook). There will be actions around the country, watch this space for details, and why not organise your own local action!
Contact us to order campaign cards and other resources (fliers/stickers/factsheets and more..) for your actions.
In the run up to the day of action please contact Sainsbury’s and ask them to stop dealing with settlement goods (details below).

SodaStream
Congratulations to everyone involved in the campaign against actor Scarlett Johansson remaining an Ambassador for Oxfam, given her relationship with occupation profiteer, SodaStream. Read the Guardian article about the campaign> Following Oxfam and Scarlett’s split, the big impact of the Palestinian rights campaign on SodaStream’s business has come to light. SodaStream has tried to defend itself with images of happy workers despite the negative impact of the settlements on the Palestinian economy (read World Bank report). The vast majority of Palestinians don’t want to work in Israel’s settlements and BDS is a tool to end Israeli occupation.

Gaza skype
Last month Ayman Abuwwad visited his family in Gaza. He found conditions there tough, and records how hard it was to leave the Gaza strip. Read his eye witness account of his journey and the difficulties faced within Gaza.
Students in Westminster, working with PSC, have been involved in Chat2Gaza: Skype conversations between students in Gaza and London. During last week’s conversation, the students in Gaza spoke in detail of the problems they faced between November and December when Gaza was deluged with continuous rainfall that resulted in flooding of the Strip.
