Sunny Sunday protest against Ahava

Report by ISM London

Pro-Palestine demonstrators once again took to the streets outside Ahava in Covent Garden this afternoon for the sixth in a series of fortnightly demonstrations against the company, which harvests and sells dead sea beauty products from the illegal Israeli West Bank Settlement of Mitzpe Shalem.

Arriving at 12pm, the thirty strong demonstration was again met by a small Zionist Federation counter protest. Each side distributed leaflets and engaged with members of the public until 2pm, when the demonstration ended. This was the first┬ádemonstration┬áto be held on a Sunday and in future the demonstrations will go back to being held every other Saturday; the next protest will be on June 5th from 12pm – 2pm.
