Saturday 23rd of october: Join the Boycott Ahava and Veolia Demonstrations

Dear Friends,

This saturday 23rd of october in London, we are carrying on with our efforts to bring those who profit from the illegal occupation of Palestine down:
Join the fortnightly demonstration outside Ahava, which sells stolen goods manufactured in the illegal settlement of Mitzpe Shalem from 12pm to 2pm, 39 Monmouth Street Covent Garden. bring banners, leaflets and friends!

more info on the campaign against Ahava: or

 Action against Veolia, complicit in maintaining and expanding illegal settlements in East Jerusalem and in the West Bank: 'Veolia The Alternative Exhibition" outside the Natural History Museum in South Kensington from 2pm to 5pm

(some of us present at the demonstration against Ahava will be going together)

more information on the Veolia action:
"Veolia is the chief corporate sponsor of the Wildlife Photography Exhibition at the Natural History Museum in London.
For Veolia such sponsorship - with the corporate name and logo liberally sprinkled on publicity material at the museum- is a key part of projecting a caring, green and progressive image.
The reality is completely different: Veolia is actively complicit in helping Israeli maintain and expand the Illegal Settlements in East Jerusalem and the West Bank. For this reason Veolia is one of the key targets of the international Boycott Divestment and Sanctions movement.
This year (like last year) a protest is being planned outside the Natural History Museum to publicise Veolia's direct connection to Israel's illegal occupation. There are a few thousand people who go to the Natural History Museum on a Saturday and so this gives us a ready-made target audience.
We are organising 'Veolia-The Alternative Exhibition' outside the Museum.  We will have large long sheets of hardboard and are asking everyone who comes to the protest to bring along pictures (cut from a newspaper / magazine or pictures printed off from the internet etc ) and to stick their pictures on the hardboard to create a montage of images of Israel's Occupation. The pictures do not need to relate directly to Veolia and can be any size.  The idea is to create a visual association in the public's mind between Veolia and the Occupation.   We will also have blank sheets for people to write comments.
The 'Alternative Exhibition' should give us a backdrop/talking point to engage with the public/passers-by. There will of course be the usual leafleting etc.
Hardboard sheets plus blutack for sticking up pictures will be provided. Please bring your pictures, banners and placards as well as yourself and other supporters. We will start at 2pm and aim to finish by 5pm; it is the same day as the fortnightly boycott Ahava demo, so the timing is designed to allow people to attend both if they want. Come along even if you can't make it for all of the time.
A number of London PSC branches and other solidarity activists have already said they are going to support this event - so please help us to build further on this. The more people we have the bigger the impact.
Attached to this e-mail is a short flyer on Veolia; could we ask you to circulate it to friends, supporters, post up on facebook etc
You can find out more info about Veolia's activities in Occupied Palestine by going to"
Hope to see you on saturday!!
In solidarity,
fellow campaigners for justice
