The free weekly direct action newsheet published in Brighton since 1994 - Copyleft - Information for Action


20 pro-palestine protesters went anti-shopping at their local Tescos in Brighton (or maybe it was actually Hove, actually). Their mission- to expose Tesco's trade with Israel's and to protest against the store's selling of Israeli products that support the Zionist state's policies of colonisation and ethnic cleansing. Just to make things more fun, a handful of pro-Israel zionists turned up- ostensibly to show their support for Team Israel, but mainly to get aggy and try and disrupt the disruption by, er, causing more disruption.

After about an hour of picketing and leafleting (the cops failed to show up to push people around) the demonstrators called it a day. When Britain's largest and arguably most evil mega-chain of hypermarkets has had its worst sales performance in years, every little helps.

I know a Israeli that produces Bell peppers for Tesco, he gets a shit deal and agrees that Palestine should have a right to live also. If he says this to a Israeli he is told he is self hating and now has to be even more careful since the recent laws.

The problem here is money and that most people dont have much an want a cheap deal so the hyper market is ideal for them. Hopefully we can raise awareness during #OpBlackMarch and really hit these bastards Tesco, Walmart (ASDA) , Morrisons and Sainsburys!!
