To all UK retailers: Stop selling Israeli produce!
Israel has continued to commit war crimes and crimes against humanity in Gaza and Palestine with complete impunity.
In the current Gaza conflict, Israel have so far massacred more than 1,700 Palestinians with mostly all deaths being civilian – including 330 children and more than 9,000 injured since the conflict began more than three weeks ago. Online images and videos confirm that Israel is in no way just defending itself and is clearly the aggressor in this conflict – assassinating unarmed civilians, bombing children playing on a beach, attacking a UN-run Gaza school where thousands of Palestinians displaced by the Israel-Hamas conflict were sheltering and shelling ambulances as they attempt to help the injured.
Israel have targeted hospitals, schools, energy supplies, water supplies and even United Nations schools in refugee camps. The people of Gaza are locked inside the largest open air prison in the world with nowhere to run. Even the UN has said there is nowhere safe to hide yet Israel continues to attack the civilian population.
As a conscientious consumer, I am asking that you cease sourcing any products from Israel until they agree a truce, withdraw their forces behind the 1967 borders, end the policy of settlement in Palestinian territory and negotiate an agreement providing for a lasting peace in accordance with UN resolutions.
I am demanding that you as my local retailer do not give economic support to Israel while they continue to flagrantly breach international law and commit war crimes against the Palestinian people.
