Boycott Israeli Flowers

This week, as Valentines Day approaches, hundreds of thousands of pounds worth of Israeli flowers will flood the British market place.

Supermarkets, florists and other stores will all receive flowers distributed by the Israeli company Carmel Aggrexco. Many of these flowers originate from illegal Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank. The land that these settlements sit on belongs to Palestinian families who were forcibly evicted from their homes and farmlands without compensation.

If you buy flowers this week, ensure that you check where they originate from, especially if you are buying them from Interflora or from supermarkets.

When you come across flowers from Israel, ensure that you complain to the store manager and the head office, making it clear that you believe trading with Israel is completely unethical especially in light of the recent atrocities and war crimes committed in Gaza.
