War on Want occupies Waitrose!
06 April 2010
On Tuesday 30 March War on Want organised a protest inside the Barbican branch of Waitrose in London against the supermarket's sale of produce from illegal Israeli settlements.
Over 50 activists filled their shopping trolleys and held a sit down protest inside the supermarket. Campaigners also distributed leaflets calling on shoppers to boycott all Israeli goods until Israel complies with international law. At the end of the protest War on Want's Executive Director John Hilary handed a letter in to the store's manager demanding it stop selling settlement produce immediately.

Thousands of War on Want supporters have also written to the CEOs of high-street supermarkets asking them to stop selling produce from illegal Israeli settlements. Read the Tesco and Sainsbury's responses here.
Morrisons, Asda and Waitrose have still not responded. Act now to tell their CEOs to end their supermarket's complicity in Israel's occupation of Palestine and the continuing violation of Palestinian human rights.
