BUYcott Israel

Anti-Israel activists in Canada will be picketing MEC stores (Mountain Equipment Co-op), a 2.9 million member strong retail cooperative, that sells outdoor gear and clothing tomorrow (Saturday November 28) while supporters of Israel hit back with increased efforts to promote a "buy-cott" of Israeli goods.

I'll be at the Calgary location at 1pm, picking up some 'made in Israel' products, like seamless underwear and hydration packs - great for cycling and hiking! Jonathon Narvey has an excellent column in the National Post (Full Comment Section) with an interview of a protester who has said, "If I were in Gaza right now I'd be a suicide bomber." Lovely. Going shopping, anyone? See you there.
