Boycott campaign takes to streets of Jenin
Students and volunteers on Sunday campaigned on the streets of Jenin to encourage residents to boycott Israeli products Maan reported
Activists distributed flyers encouraging people not to buy Israeli produce as part of a nationwide campaign organized by the Palestinian National Initiative.
Launched during the Muslim holiday Eid al-Adha, organizers say the campaign is in response to Israel's escalation in violence and the increase in settler attacks.
The Palestinian Medical Relief Society is supporting the campaign, and volunteers from the organization handed out flyers in Jenin on Sunday.
PMRS representative Amra Amra told Ma'an the campaign was focusing on the boycott of Israeli juice Tapuzina, adding that concentrating efforts on one product would have the greatest impact on the Israeli economy.
She said the campaign was a call to all Palestinians to join the boycott as an effective form of popular resistance, noting that there were international efforts to boycott Israeli products around the world.
