hey so just a reminder not to buy israeli fruits and vegetables, sodastream home drink machines, ahava cosmetics, anything by HP, or sabra hummus, as these all benefit particularly severely from the oppression of palestinians and are current focuses of the global BDS movement


for other israeli products or for other products that benefit from the oppression of palestinians, consider your current economic ability to avoid purchasing them
