    (metro McGill)
    Montreal, Canada.

Support the campaign to boycott Chapters/Indigo bookstore, launched in December 2006 to oppose the support that Heather Reisman and Gerry Schwartz, the company’s majority shareholders, give to Israeli apartheid. Across Canada a growing number of people are supporting boycott Chapters/Indigo campaign in the context of the international campaign to push for boycott, divestment and sanctions against the apartheid state of Israel.

Reisman and Schwartz have established the controversial “HESEG Foundation for Lone Soldiers”, a program of financial support for former ‘lone soldiers’, non-Israelis who fight in the Israeli military, in defense of apartheid and occupation. Israeli ‘lone soldiers’ participated in the 2006 devastating military attack on the people of Lebanon and continue to enforce the illegal military occupation of the West Bank and Gaza Strip.

At its peak, the HESEG Foundation will distribute up to $3M a year to provide scholarships and other benefits to former ‘Lone Soldiers’ who remain in Israel. As long as the majority shareholders maintain financial links to HESEG, this campaign calls on everyone to stop buying from Chapters, World’s Biggest Bookstore, SmithBooks, Coles, the Book Company and Indigospirit.

In Montreal the Coalition Against Israeli Apartheid and Tadamon! Montreal calls on you join the growing movement against Israeli apartheid and support the campaign to boycott Indigo/Chapters!
