Can movements like The Swarthmore Campaign end the apartheid in Israel?
The massacre in Gaza has prompted many people to actively boycott Israeli products. The effects of the consumer boycott are already being felt by Israeli farmers who are now complaining that their produce is rotting in warehouses because of canceled orders. And in London, activists shut down Ahava, an Israeli owned cosmetics shop that manufactures their product in an illegal settlement. While the boycott actions progress, a new front of action is being opened by activists at Swarthmore College in Pennsylvania: an Alumni based Divestment from Israel campaign.
