Activists Mount Protest at West Bank Supermarket

Some 100 Palestinians and international activists protesting in front of a supermarket in a West Bank settlement called for a boycott of settlement goods.

Waving Palestinian flags, the protesters entered the Rami Levy supermarket in Shaar Binyamin, near Beit El, on Wednesday chanting “Out, out settlers” and carrying signs reading “boycott the occupation and its products,” and .

Four activists were arrested; the activists claimed that the police and security official used excessive force, according to Ynet.

“This time we chose the Rami Levy store because we want to send a message to boycott the occupation and its products,” Abir Kopti, an activist with the Popular Struggle Coordination Committee, told Ynet. “As long as the Palestinians get no justice, settlers and Israelis will not lead normal lives.”

The protest is the second in what the committee says will be a series of civil disobedience protests against the settlements. Last week, activists blocked Route 443, a road to Jerusalem that was opened recently to Palestinian traffic.
