Report Back: London supermarket sweep

Report from organizer War on Want: About 50 people came to the action which we organised in Waitrose Supermarket in east London. We piled up all the Israeli produce, leafleted customers about the day of action and boycotting Israeli produce and handed in a letter to the manager.

John Hilary spoke to the assembled crowd about the issues facing Palestinians and the need to escalate BDS activity. We got support from other customers in the shop and the workers.

War on Want also did a mass email action on 30th March asking our supporters to write to the Chief Executives of Waitrose, Tesco, Sainsburys, Morrisons and Asda (all big UK supermarket chains) asking them to ban settlement goods. Over 1600 people have taken action SO FAR!
