From the UK Zionist Federation:
Every second Saturday, a nasty group of bullies stands outside the Ahava Dead Sea beauty products shop in Covent Garden, disrupting trade and chanting anti-Israel slogans. Their aim is to shut down this Israeli business because they believe in boycotting Israel.
On the weekend of 20-21 November 2010 we will show them that we refuse to be bullied. And we need YOUR help!
The more people who turn up during that weekend to buy some of the wonderful products from this shop (all enriched with amazing minerals from the Dead Sea), the more we will show our refusal to be bullied.
The protestors will be there on Saturday from 12midday – 2pm, and we want them to see a constant line of people filing into the shop to buy products. But our BUYcott lasts all weekend, so please come any time you feel comfortable with. As the protestors are there on Shabbat, we hope that non Jewish friends of Israel might attend then, and the BUYcott continues all day on Sunday, too, for those who cannot attend on Saturday.
This is a perfect opportunity to buy these wonderful Israeli products which are great for the skin in time for Chanukah or Christmas. They make perfect presents. And for that weekend only, if you mention that you are part of the ZF’s BUYcott at the till, you will get TEN PERCENT OFF!
Please support a shop being bullied for selling Israeli products. Please support Israel. We are relying on you and your friends, so spread the word.
