Action Alert: Support the Olympia Food Co-Op’s Historic Boycott!

Take a look below at the action alert from our allies up in Olympia, Washington!  The Olympia Food Co-op is the first US grocery store to publicly deshelve Israeli products in support of the Palestinian call for Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions!

But, we’ve been hearing reports of major push-back.  The main rabbi in Olympia is publicly boycotting the Co-op.   Stand With Us is calling for others to boycott the Co-op and is initiating a letter-writing campaign to the local paper.  Co-op staff have received harassing phone calls, and there is a major protest against this decision being planned as well.

Please take a moment to write to the Co-Op board and sign the petition — see below for more details!

Olympia Food Co-op Boycotts Israeli Goods!
Now We Need Your Help!

Just last week the Board of Directors of the Olympia Food Co-op in Olympia, WA, the hometown of Rachel Corrie, took the courageous step of instituting a boycott of Israeli goods, the first grocery boycott of Israel in the US.

Already, there is a movement afoot to condemn the Co-op for taking this important stand. Please help us thank the Olympia Food Co-op and its board of directors for supporting human rights in Palestine!


More Information

Olympia BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) is a grassroots network of community members in Olympia, WA, joining the call by Palestinian civil society for a non-violent, global movement of boycott, divestment, and sanctions of Israel, until it meets the requirements of human rights and international law.

In answering to the Palestinian Call, we stand with Desmond Tutu, Naomi Klein, Elvis Costello, Richard Falk and many, many others. The failure of elected officials to hold Israel accountable for its atrocious actions forces global civil society to act, for a non-violent solution and justice for Palestinians and Israelis alike.
