"Flashmob" to boycott Israeli Apartheid

"Seacret" is an Israeli cosmetics company that profits by pillaging the resources of the Dead Sea. This is to the environmental and economic detriment of Palestinians, who are not even permitted to walk its shores (even though much of the coastline is within the internationally recognised borders of Palestine).

Friends of Palestine WA has organised an action this weekend at the Seacret booth at Carousel Shopping Centre, (Albany Highway, Cannington).

Date: Saturday 26 March (end of Israel Apartheid Week)
Time: 2pm
Where: Seacret kiosk, Carousel Shopping Centre

This action has been organised by Friends of Palestine WA as part of the international campaign of "boycott, divestment and sanctions" against apartheid Israel. Recent successes of this campaign included the decision by Marrickville Council in NSW to support the BDS campaign (the first local government to do so) and the decision by Johannesburg University to effectively cut ties with Ben Gurion University in Israel (the first university in the world to do so).
