Sainsbury's stop trading with agricultural companies that support Israeli apartheid
On February 9th 2013, in response to the call from Palestinian civil society, the Sainsbury’s campaign was launched calling on Sainsbury’s to cease all trade with companies complicit in the colonisation of Palestinian land. We call on Sainsbury’s, as a supermarket chain which prides itself on its fair trade and corporate responsibility policies, to take an ethical stance and follow the lead of the Co-operative group.
As customers of Sainsbury’s we, the undersigned, urge Sainsbury’s to cease trading with companies which profit from Israel’s occupation and illegal settlement of Palestinian land. Sainsbury’s, a company signed up to the Ethical Trading Initiative, markets itself as a ‘leader in fair trade’ and claims to source its products both ‘ethically’ and ‘with integrity’. We call on you immediately to cease dealing with companies which profit from activities which are illegal under international law.
