The boycott Marks and Spencer pickets have been taking place around Britain since the 2nd Initifada began. Marks and Spencer is the biggest corporate sponsor of the Zionist occupation in Britain. The pickets aim to bring solidarity for the Palestinian people on to the streets of Britain and to highlight the British governments historical links to the Zionist movement (particularly the Labour Party). Last Thursday around 20 British zionists (fascists/racists) turned up before us with a stall handing out leaflets about why British people should buy Israeli goods, with placards showing pictures of people killed by suicide bombs, with Israeli flags and Union Jacks. They had a megaphone which they used to espouse the usual racist insults against Arabic and Muslim people and calling on people to shop in M&S.
They have promised to return this Thursday. It is vital that we have a huge turnout to show them that active solidarity for the Palestinian people cannot be chased or intimidated off the streets. Please come to demonstrate against Zionist brutality and in support of the resistance this Thursday 11 September outside the flagship Marks and Spencer on Oxford Street, near Marble Arch from 6-8pm.
Long Live Palestine!
Victory to the Intifada group.
