Action of the Week!

 

The Olympia Food Co-op in Olympia, Washington, voted on Friday July 16th to boycott Israeli products.
 
You can help by doing three things:
 
First: Write a letter to the market's Board members expressing your views. You can find points in the sample letter below. Send your letter to
[email protected]with a copy to [email protected].

To the Board Members of the Olympia Food Co-op Market,
 
I am shocked at your decision to punish one side in the Middle East conflict. Your decision negates any possible responsibility on the part of Hamas, Islamic Jihad and Palestinian rejectionism. I am aware that you did not invite anyone to speak on behalf of Israel's position when you were in the process of making your decision. Your deliberate failure to be fair and open in your decision process goes against the democratic principles of co-ops in general because it is patently undemocratic.
 
I look forward to hearing that you have reversed this destructive and anti-Semitic decision.
 
Second: Please tell everyone on your e-mail list and, especially, anyone you know in Washington State, to boycott the Olympia Food Co-op for as long as the market adheres to this one-sided decision to boycott Israeli goods. This anti-boycott action should hold true for any establishment that decides to join the one-sided boycott movement against Israel. A campaign like this is not at all helpful to the peace process.
 
Third: Write a letter to the Olympian,  the local newspaper. Use this website:

To the Editor: I am shocked at this past week’s decision of the Olympia Food Co-op to boycott Israeli products. This decision punishes one side in the Middle East conflict and negates any responsibility on the part of Hamas, Islamic Jihad and Palestinian rejectionism. They did not invite anyone to speak on behalf of Israel's position when they were in the process of making their decision. Their deliberate failure to be fair and open in the decision process goes against basic democratic principles.
 
I hope that people in the community will boycott the Olympia Food Co-op until they rescind their destructive and anti-Semitic decision.
 
Sincerely,
