I know this is a cycling blog and all that, but any and all outlets are good outlets at moments like this.
Knowing the state of Czech activism, we aren’t likely see any major protests (which are occurring all over the world) against Israel’s illegal piracy and massacre of unarmed activists on the Gaza Freedom Flotilla yesterday. One thing we can do quietly, however, is to stop buying all products that benefit the Israeli economy. Check the barcodes and labels on stuff you buy around town – especially clothing and produce. The barcode beginning with 729 denotes Israeli goods. Also avoid Starbucks (Go to MamaCoffee instead – do you really need another reason??), Marks & Spencer (huge supporter of various settler causes), Kenvelo (still partly Israeli owned and run by barely-reformed drug smugglers, not to mention the fact they make crap fashion for rednecks…) and Ahava (weird face cream real girls don’t need.)
I can’t seem to find a list of cycling products made in Israel, but just look for the barcode and buy local if possible. Gloves, shoes, sunglasses and accessories like that are likely suspects. I’m going to some shops to start compiling a list later on, and if anyone wants to add to this list, feel free.
