Supermarket week of action – act against setttlement produce


Waitrose and Morrisons Phone-in day Wednesday 11th November

This coincides with a week of action called by the Palestinian Grassroots Anti-Apartheid Wall Campaign targeting in particular produce from the Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank. The settlements are illegal under international law and goods originating there should not be on sale in the UK.

The label ‘West Bank’ is grossly misleading; some shoppers think they are buying Palestinian produce.

From November 7 to 15, PSC and other organisations across the UK are targeting Waitrose and Morrisons supermarkets in particular, as both refuse to discuss the question of settlement goods. This contrasts with Sainsbury’s and Tesco’s, both of which are involved in high-level discussions on the issue, the Cooperative Society which has taken a principled stand against produce from illegal settlements, and Marks and Spencer which has said it does not stock settlement goods.

We aim to inundate Waitrose and Morrisons with calls to their HQs on Wednesday, November 11.

Contact details:

Morrisons Customer Services – 0845 611 6111 email: Morrisons’ Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Marc Bolland

Waitrose Customer Services – 0800 188 884 email: Waitrose CEO Mark Price, Chief Executive, Mark Price

Groups and individuals can stage a range of actions during the weekends of November 7-8 and November 14-15, and any time in between:

o Write or deliver letters to the manager of your local store
o Write or email their headquarters
o Organise or join a demonstration at your local branch
o Set up a stall or hand out leaflets outside your local branch
o Deluge Morrisons and Waitrose with phonecalls on Weds November 11
o Display photos, placards and other visual information making the case against the occupation
o Contact local media to publicise the campaign
