Deshelve Israeli products this week!

by Kate Tuesday, Sep. 08, 2009 at 5:49 AM

JOIN US AND TAKE ACTION!! The main places locally to buy Israeli products are the Arab markets. They should know better! We are here to support you to ask these stores not to carry Israeli products. If they will not deshelve Israeli products, and voluntarily cleanse their shelves of products that support occupation and apartheid, we are here to provide resources for you to create disencentives for stores to stock Israeli products


The goals of the deshelving campaign are:

1) 1. To oppose Israeli occupation, apartheid, violence, and land theft and to support equality and justice for all, including the Palestinian people.

2) To demonstrate that there is public support for boycotting Israeli

products and products that profit from apartheid;

3) To convince businesses that it is in their economic interest to stop

carrying Israeli products, by creating a cost to their business, whether by putting public pressure,

damaging products or disrupting business; and

4) To empower those who want to take personal and political action in support of equity and

justice, in the tradition of the international campaign to end apartheid in

South Africa.

NOTE: We suggest care in the tone of our actions so as not to counter productively antagonize or alienate potential supporters, whether customers or store




There are many ways to participate in deshelving Israeli products. Each

group and individual should decide for yourselves what makes sense for you.

Possible actions include (& can be used in combination):

1. Leafleting outside stores (a downloadable leaflet will be posted here

very soon), with lists of the Israeli products carried by the establishment

you're targeting

2. Giving consumers a coupon to present to the cashier when they check

out, asking the store to stop carrying Israeli products

3. Putting "Don't Buy Into Apartheid" stickers on the products and

leaving them on the shelves (see exemplary photos)

4. Removing products from shelves and piling them in the front of the


5. Removing products from shelves and leaving them in hard-to-find places

in the store

6. Removing products from the store and dumping them in the street

7. Damaging products in some way (e.g., pouring fake blood or ketchup on

them) so they cannot be reshelved

8. Singing, guerrilla theater or speechifying inside or outside of the

store (see exemplary video)

9. Protesting/picketing/bannering outside the store

Most actions will have multiple components and options for people who don't

want to risk arrest, along with more confrontational options.

Leafleting is an important component of any action, because we are trying to educate the public about Israeli apartheid and human rights violations and the BDS campaign. We are working on a sample leaflet which will be downloadable here very soon.

Send us your plans!! Let us know if we can help!!
