The Lev Leviev diamonds store was picketed today in protest against his direct financing of the expansion of Israeli settlements.

Lev Leviev and his diamonds are well known to be directly financing the expansion of Israeli colonies into the Palestinian territories (which is a war crime according to the Geneva conventions). The result is the impoverishment and continued subjugation of the Palestinian people.
