AHAVA Protest this Saturday

Demonstrate outside AHAVA
Saturday 28 August
12 – 2pm, Monmouth Street, Covent Garden, London

The next fortnightly demonstration outside the Ahava beauty shop in Covent Garden, London, takes place this Saturday (28 August) from 12 - 2pmpm.

The campaign against Ahava, not just in England, but worldwide, is moving forward rapidly with London’s fortnightly demonstrations leading the way.

Why Ahava? Ahava is an Israeli company which profits from Israel’s illegal occupation of Palestinian land. Its factory is based on land stolen from the Palestinians - in the illegal West Bank settlement of Mitzpe Shalem - and its products use mud from the Dead Sea, illegally exploiting the West Bank’s natural resources. Ahava’s presence in Mitzpe Shalem secures the financial viability of this settlement, and helps to cement the Occupation.

Why this Saturday? The fortnightly demonstrations have become a target for the racist English Defence League. This far-right organisation has teamed up with the Zionist Federation to counter-demonstrate outside Ahava, and will be present again this Saturday. Bring Palestinian flags, banners, whistles and drums and drown out the voices of racism and fascism.

Oppose fascism - Support the Palestinians - Close down Ahava - PROTEST THIS SATURDAY
