Friends of Al-Aqsa is calling for a boycott of Sabra which is co-owned by the Strauss Group, an Israeli company with extensive ties to the Israel Army.
The Strauss Group has distribution agreements in Israel with a distributor company that caters to Israeli army canteens. They also have a history of providing material support to the Israeli army, particularly the Golani Brigade, who have been responsible for war crimes and severe abuses of human rights.
With evidence of clear support for the illegal Israeli occupation, we want Sainsburys to adhere to their ethical commitments and take Sabra off their shelves.
We are calling for the British government to stop funding Israeli war crimes by cancelling its arms export licenses to Israel. Currently the funds given to Israel as military aid are used to oppress Palestinians by using excessive and violent force, making their daily lives unbearable.
Israeli produce is often grown in illegal settlements in the West Bank which is exported to other countries, including the United Kingdom. As a result, it has become increasingly difficult to trust where this produce is coming from, due to misleading labelling. We are asking consumers to #CheckTheLabel and boycott produce from Israel, West Bank and the Jordan Valley.
The boycotting of goods from illegal settlements produce is becoming well established. It is supported by the Co-operative, the Quakers, Amnesty International and the Trades Union Congress, alongside numerous organisations from across civil society.
However, there has long been calls for wider boycotting, as Israeli companies have been found to repeatedly breach food labelling regulations by labelling settlements goods as ‘produce of Israel’. Produce from the West Bank and the Jordan Valley are likely to be from illegal settlements.
Hewlett Packard (HP) install and maintain the control systems used in Israel’s checkpoints, provide technologies to both the Israeli Army and Navy, and produce bio-metric ID cards allowing Israel to monitor and restrict Palestinian movement.
We are not asking you to throw away your HP products. We are simply asking you to make a pledge to boycott HP products in the future.
Please sign the pledge and help us inform others about HP’s role in facilitating the Israeli occupation of Palestine.
The #HandsoffAlAqsa campaign is about educating people about the significance of Masjid al-Aqsa as the third-holiest site in Islam, which is currently physically deteriorating under the Israeli occupation.
We want to put al-Aqsa on the global political agenda in order to protect Masjid al-Aqsa from occupation and preserve this fundamentally sacred space.
FOA is calling for a boycott of Coca-Cola, in response to its support of Israel and its illegal and immoral occupation.
Coca-Cola violates international law and supports Israel’s occupation by operatinga bottling plant in Atarot and Shadmot Mehola illegal settlements in the Jordan Valley.
Buying from companies which work in settlements such as Coca Cola means we as consumers are turning a blind eye to the illegal settlement of Palestinian land.
