Dozens of Palestinians braved a searing July sun to rally in Gaza’s Saha market district against the sale of Israeli products yesterday afternoon.
The demonstration, part of the Palestinian Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement, drew participants from the BDS National Committee (BNC), the Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel (PACBI), the Palestinian National Initiative (PNI), and the Palestinian NGO Network (PNGO).
“As a Palestinian, I believe that boycott, in all its forms, is a primary tool in our struggle against the occupation,” said Hanan Abunasser, a recent university graduate.
“Our biggest supermarkets in Gaza are almost full of Israeli products. We as Palestinians should insist on alternatives, and all Israeli products should be boycotted.” more
