Buy Israeli Goods
Participate in BIG (Buy Israeli Goods) Day
March 30, 2011
To counter a global BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) day of action against Israeli products and companies on March 30, the CRC of MetroWest is joining with StandWithUs and the America-Israel Chambers of Commerce to designate Wednesday, March 30 as the day to actively Buy Israeli Goods.
We urge all community members to go to your local stores and request Israeli products. Whenever a boycott is called, we urge you to respond by purchasing the very Israeli goods that are being targeted and let store managers know they should keep them well-stocked on the shelves. Let us show that any calls for boycotts of even one or two stores will always be met with a much larger counter-movement to buy Israeli goods.To locate stores in your area that carry Israeli products, visit www.BuyIsraelGoods.org.
To help us measure the success of BIG, we suggest the following:
Shop with friends, take pictures and videos of yourself purchasing Israeli products.
Make entries for YouTube. Make them positive, fun and/or funny. Email your photos or links to your videos and pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org.
