Brighton and Hove PSC, together with a number of other local pro-Palestinian and antiracist groups, mounted a lively and effective picket of the new Ecostream store in Western Road in Brighton.
The picket is a local manifestation of the international campaign of Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) targeting Israeli economic, cultural, academic and sporting activities, called for by the Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel (PACBI).
For full coverage of the picket, including video and photos and useful background to Ecostream’s complicity in illegal settlements, land grabs and ethnic cleansing, see Tony Greenstein’s blog post.
Local activists plan to picket the Ecostream store every Saturday afternoon from 1pm till 3pm, aiming to raise awareness about Ecostream’s true background and about BDS generally, and to discourage local people from patronising the store. Join us!
