Nablus, 2 Jumadil Akhir 1436/22 March 2015 (MINA) – Dozens of Palestinian activists and merchants took to Nablus streets on Saturday to join a peaceful rally staged by the popular committee for the boycott of Israeli products.
Dozens of activists and children, flocking around Nablus’s commercial central at noontime, lifted banners and posters calling for boycotting Israeli goods and purchasing local ones, The Palestinian Information Center (PIC) quoted by Mi’raj Islamic News Agency (MINA) as reporting.
The rally goers addressed, as they walked around the market, the Palestinian masses urging them to recoil from buying Israeli-made goods, one of the primary sources of funding Israeli war machinery unleashed on Palestinians.
The non-violent protesters headed in small groups to the local shops, calling on the merchants to shun Israeli items.
Members of the popular committee to boycott Israeli products urged dealers of Israeli merchandise to immediately cease restocking Palestinian markets.
They further appealed to the unity government to block all economic prospects before Israeli agricultural products, stressing the need to protect local farmers instead.
The committee further urged the Palestinian government to put into effect the decision adopted by the Palestinian Central Council to deactivate the Paris accord.
The activists called on the PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas to issue a decision officially outlawing the purchase of Israeli commodities so as to boost up Palestine’s struggle for national liberation and end Israel’s occupation of Palestine.
The rally falls in line with a comprehensive agenda designed by the popular committee to raise awareness of the need to foster the boycott-of-Israel campaigns and promote home economy. (T/P008/P3)
