Check The Label – Boycott Israeli Dates – Ramadan 2016
Every year, Israel exports millions of pounds worth of dates to the world, which many people unknowingly buy and use to break their fasts. These dates are often grown in illegal settlements in the Occupied West Bank and the Jordan Valley, on land that has been stolen from Palestinians. By buying these dates, we are helping Israel to continue it’s illegal occupation and oppression of the Palestinian people. With your hard work, dedication and support the #CheckTheLabel campaign has grown significantly over the last 8 years. The campaign has gone to the heart of the communities in cities and towns across the UK to ensure no one buys these dates. However, despite our efforts not everyone is aware, which is why we need your help this Ramadan. With only three weeks to go before Ramadan we want you to help us launch the #CheckTheLabel – Boycott Israeli Dates campaign.
