FOA needs your help to re-launch Check the Label Campaign

On Saturday 20th September we want you to help us online between 1pm and 2pm to promote the hashtag #ICheckTheLabel. Use this hashtag in whatever way you wish on your social media profiles.

In parallel FOA will be holding a set of street events in London and sharing them on our official FacebookTwitter and Instagram, which we want you to 'like' and 'share'.

So all we want is 3 minutes from you to upload selfies, videos clips or simply tweet and update your status with #ICheckTheLabel and upload them between 1pm and 2pm.

I condemn the theft of another 1000 acres of land by Israel in the West Bank #ICheckTheLabel 

#ICheckTheLabel because I insist the Israeli Govt abides by international law and ends the Occupation

Israeli Govt needs to be pressured to dismantle illegal settlements #ICheckTheLabel

#ICheckTheLabel & demand an end to the illegal occupation of Palestinian territories. I refuse to buy anything from there

Israeli settlements are illegal under International Law #ICheckTheLabel

Hague regulations prohibit occupying powers frm making permanent changes in occupied areas but Israel continues 2 do so #ICheckTheLabel

#ICheckTheLabel as the illegal settlements from which the goods come from have been declared by UN in 1979 as having ‘no legal validity’

#ICheckTheLabel because Israel continues to break the 4th Geneva Convention again and again & I condemn this

ICC Act 2001 part of English Criminal law makes it illegal to support Israel to transfer its civilians into Palestine #ICheckTheLabel

#ICheckTheLabel as the International court of justice in 2004 declared Israeli settlements as ILLEGAL

#ICheckTheLabel as the produce is grown on illegal settlements which were established in breach of Int Law (Int court of Justice 2004)

The British Govt FCO website states the settlements in East Jerusalem and West Bank are illegal #ICheckTheLabel

The UN resolutions 446 & 465 deplore the illegal settlements and it’s a war crime to move civilians into them #ICheckTheLabel

#ICheckTheLabel because settlements are illegal under international law

I have a duty not to economically aid those carrying out illegal acts so #ICheckTheLabel

#ICheckTheLabel because stealing Palestinian land & growing produce on it is illegal

#ICheckTheLabel because over 95% of Palestinian land in Jordan valley is controlled by settlers

#ICheckTheLabel for illegally grown produce which we need to boycott

#ICheckTheLabel because Palestinians are forced to work as labourers on land that belongs to them and should rightly be returned to them

Israeli settlements control more than 40% of West Bank where the produce is grown and I condemn this so #ICheckTheLabel

#ICheckTheLabel & support the Palestinian struggle for independence

#ICheckTheLabel because I condemn the HOME DEMOLITIONS of innocent people

#ICheckTheLabel as the produce is grown in illegal settlements where at least 250,000 Palestinians are vulnerable to attacks by settlers

Settlement industrial zones have dangerous working conditions and breach health & safety for Palestinians #ICheckTheLabel

Palestinians who are forced to work on their own land by settlers do not get the minimum wage #ICheckTheLabel

Israeli minimum wage is 154 shekels, and Palestinians only get 30-70 shekels a day in the settlements #ICheckTheLabel

#ICheckTheLabel because I am against child cruelty

#ICheckTheLabel because child labourers should be eradicated and I will boycott any produce from these settlements

#ICheckTheLabel because Israelis use Palestinian children as young as 13 to work in these illegal settlements

#ICheckTheLabel because I believe ALL children should have a childhood

I do not support child labour in the Jordan Valley #ICheckTheLabel

50% of Israel’s produce is imported by EU, I don't support this #ICheckTheLabel

Produce grown in illegal settlements ends up in Asda, Tesco, Sainsburys, Morrisons and Waitrose #ICheckTheLabel 

I refuse to economically support Israeli settlements #ICheckTheLabel 

#ICheckTheLabel because as a consumer I have a choice and I will exercise that choice

#ICheckTheLabel and demand a ban on the importing of goods from the illegal settlements  

#ICheckTheLabel and urge the supermarkets not to stock illegal goods from illegal settlements

#ICheckTheLabel because I care

#ICheckTheLabel because I stand 4 freedom & human rights
