Pro Palestine Action: Boycott Marks & SpencerTagged as: boycott gaza library_house marks_and_spencer palestine
Published by group: The Library House
Friday 9th of January, a smal possee from the Library House organised a little stall in front of Marks&Spencer Brixton to relay info about the conflict in Israel/Palestine and the Boycott of Isreali goods Campaign.
We got there with our wall-paper table, few leaflets and a flask of tea. Was good fun, handing out our leaflet about the Palestine-Israel conflict and about the strong link between Marks&Spencer and the Zionist State of Israel.
After a bit of talk, we even had some people not going in M&S as they were planning ! (and probably went to shop in another supermarket selling Israel goods, or stuff made by kids somewhere, or just simply made by any worker exploited by their bosses!! As we all do...)
So well, nothing huge, but a small drop. :)
After that, we went to have a look at the cool graphiti thats on the skate Park in Brixton, check the pictures!
Excerpt of one of our Leaflet (data from a Research conducted by IHRC : http://www.ihrc.org):
From is birth M&S has been linked inextricably to Zionism. In fact in a book on M&S, Lord Marcus Sieff - long time Chairman of M&S - wrote that one of the fundamental objectives of M&S is to aid the economic development of Israel (Management: The Marks & Spencer Way, Weidenfield & Nicolson, 1990).
M&S supports Israel with approximately $233 million in trade every year (Jerusalem Report, 5 June 2000) .
The JTA reported that "The Israeli ambassador to England recently honored Marks & Spencer for the company's continued support of Israel." (JTA, 13 December 2000).
In 1998 Sir Richard Greenbury Marks & Spencer, received the Jubilee Award by the Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu. This is the highest tribute ever awarded by the "State of Israel" in recognition of those individuals and organizations, that through their investments and trade relationships, have done the most to strengthen the Israeli economy.
