    Default Boycott Israel Campaign



    Boycott Israel Campaign (scroll down there are some great printable brochures with all the firms to boycott)

    The Boycott Israeli Goods Campaign - Home

    Israeli produce:
    Israeli products barcode starts with #729

    I hope everyone picks at least one or two of these brands to boycott.

    So if there's a good from say Intel or IBM without a #729 barcode, a good which may've been made in Ireland or somewhere else would that be okay?

    not really Intel and IBM have major facilities in Israel - they have a policy to have significant trade with that country

    It is impossible to boycott eveything but as I said everyone should be able to pick a few brands.

    Intel and IBM are two of the most prominant companies in their field ... do you know alternatives to Intel and IBM for example that don't have Israeli links?

    I know it's a bit weak and lazy but I'll boycott McDonalds and coke because they're p*ss awful anyway.Some of the others are a bit tricky,like Galil.I mean,I can't go around inspecting women's underwear.Even in a shop.Especially in a shop.

    What about stuff in yer average Supervalu? Long time since I saw a carton of juice that said 'Buy me,I'm from Israel'. Back in the 70s oranges were from Spain- Franco,South Africa - Apartheid,Israel,Chile..it's a wonder we didn't all die of scurvy!

    An easy one is the baby potatoes from Israel that our supermarkets are full of. Why do we import potatoes from a friggin desert on the other side of the world anyway? It's incomprehensible.
