A big load of shit dumped outside Agrexco expressed exactly what activists feel about the Israeli agricultural export company. The truck load of horse manure was off-loaded at the front gate of Agrexco’s depot in Hayes, Middlesex, last Sunday (16th).
Agrexco fruit and veg are grown on illegal Israeli settlements in the West Bank and are delivered to mainstream supermarkets in the UK, in breach of British, EU and international law. Britain represents a large market for the company, providing them with sixty percent of their foreign sales.
The action was part of an ongoing campaign against recurring violations of human rights and international law in the occupied territories of Palestine and to expose Agrexco’s illegal activity (See SchNEWS 649).
