Amnesty International activists delivered a “special Christmas gift ” to the UK Foreign Office earlier this month, to highlight campaigners’ demand for a ban on Israeli settlement produce.
The gift was stocked with olive oil, wine, dates, and oranges marked with “Delicious but tainted” stickers.
According to Amnesty, “these items are just some of the thousands of products from illegal Israeli settlements that end up on our shelves in the UK.”
These products are made on stolen land, with stolen resources, and profit from human rights abuses,” the group added. Amnesty also said that in 2019 there will be a new campaign launched “targeting some businesses that are profiting from human rights abuses in illegal Israeli settlements,” the petition said.
