- Montreal Launch of the international “Boycott Ahava” campaign!
- Saturday October 31st 2009
12:30pm – 4:30pm
across from the Bay at
St. Catherine and Union
You’re invited to the Hallowe’en party of the year! Join Tadamon and the Québec BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) Committee as we launch the Boycott Ahava campaign in Montreal. On the scariest day of the year, we will be demanding that the Bay take its creepiest product, Ahava Dead Sea cosmetics, off its shelves.
Ahava Dead Sea Laboratories is a privately held Israeli cosmetics company that manufactures products using minerals and mud from the Dead Sea. Ahava’s products — such as Grape & Avocado Body Wash, Dead Sea Mineral Mud, and Mineral Foot Cream — are widely available in high-end department stores and pharmacies throughout the United States, Europe and Canada. The Hebrew word “Ahava” means love, but there is nothing loving about the company’s operations in the Occupied Palestinian territory of the West Bank. Ahava’s corporate practices are against international law.
Ahava is hiding the ugly truth — that its products are derived from stolen Palestinian natural resources in the occupied West Bank and are manufactured in the illegal West Bank settlement of Mitzpe Shalem.
Wear your scariest costume to our Halloween party at the Bay and join zombies of apartheid, occupation vampires, and war crimes mud monsters at this festive public awareness action which aims to UNMASK the ugly truth about Israeli apartheid!
