Media and Public Launch of Check the Label


On 10th May, FOA and Zaytoun will be launching the Check the Label – Boycott Israeli dates campaign.

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 grown in illegal settlements in the West Bank and the Jordan Valley, on land that has been stolen from Palestinians. By buying these dates, we are in fact helping Israel to continue its occupation and oppression of the Palestinian people.

For this reason, Friends of Al Aqsa will again be launching the ‘Check the Label’ Campaign. We would like activists to attend to ask any questions, share experiences and collect campaign literature.

What: Media and Public Launch of ‘Check the Label’ Boycott Israeli Dates Campaign

When: Tuesday, 10th May, 2011 – 6.30pm

Where: 10 Greycoat Place, Victoria, London, SW1P 1SB

To register your place, please email your name to with the title:  ‘Check the Label Launch’.
