Ógra Shinn Féin in Strabane have called on people of conscience in the local community to boycott Israeli goods and companies, in protest at Israel’s murderous onslaught on the people of Gaza.
The youth movement has said that this is a practical action in which people who feel disgusted at Israeli terror can take to support the beleaguered people of the Gaza strip.
Calling on the people of Strabane to support the Palestinians in their time of strife, Chairperson of the Tobias Molloy cumann Ógra Shinn Féin Seán Mac Giolla Easpaig said;
“As people grow even more angry at Israel’s actions in Gaza, it must be stressed that the average person on the ground is not completely helpless in all of this.”
“Israeli companies operate in Ireland and Israeli goods are on sale in local shops. We call on people of conscience in Strabane to join the international boycott of Israeli goods. Goods produced in Israel bear a unique barcode starting with the digits 729. We would ask people to check their weekly shopping and refuse to purchase products carrying this barcode in protest against Israel’s murderous assault on the Palestinian people”
“Israel’s leaders will carry on their attacks with impunity if there is no economic cost to their acts of genocide. A small trade dependant nation like Israel is very vulnerable to a boycott campaign, and if enough people take part in this international action it will have a realistic chance of success.
