SCOTTISH PALESTINE SOLIDARITY CAMPAIGN call for 'ISRAEL OUT OF THE CO-OP'
Here is what they say:
'While all major supermarkets continue to stock produce from Israel, the Co-operative Group/Scotmid claim they are committed to supporting human rights and willing to lead and break ranks with industry in support of ethical principles. If this is true, they must now rid their shelves of Israeli produce.
The Scottish Palestine Solidarity Campaign have initiated a campaign to get 'Israel out of the Co-op/Scotmid', and campaigners have been leafleting outside Scotmid stores to raise awareness among customers.
Please actively support the boycott campaign with the following actions:
- Drop in to your local Co-op/Scotmid store and ask to speak to the manager, saying that you feel they should no longer stock products from Israel.
- Contact the Co-operative Group directly (who are responsible for Scotmid and other Co-op stores) making it clear that you feel they should no longer stock Israeli goods (See sample letter below as a basis for your letter / comments / phone call).
