Bradford Palestine Solidarity Campaign group plans protest in Keighley
9:00am Tuesday 17th September 2013 in News
People who are against the building of Jewish settlements in Palestine plan to stage a demonstration in Keighley next month.
Supporters of the Bradford Palestine Solidarity Campaign say they will be outside the entrance to Sainsbury’s supermarket on Saturday, October 5, to highlight their opposition to goods produced in Jewish settlements located on Palestinian land.
A spokesman for the campaign said as Sainsbury’s prides itself on being a leading Fair Trade supermarket the group will be pressuring it not to deal with companies active in the Jewish settlements.
The protest is to take place from 11.30am to 1.30pm.
A Sainsbury’s spokesman said: “As a non-political organisation we source our products according to our ability to meet the safety, quality and ethical standards that our customers expect.”
