There are many ways to support the Palestinian people’s right to a just and peaceful life and to self-determination, including:
– supporting solidarity organisations, projects and charities;
– boycotting Israeli products;
– educating yourself about the issue of Palestine;
– and, campaigning and taking direct action.
But another way is to buy Palestinian products. This helps the Palestinian economy and in many cases supports suppliers working with ‘fair trade’ principles – ensuring that the individual farmers, craftspeople and manufacturers in Palestine or in Palestinian refugee camps throughout the Middle East receive a decent wage and the dignity that goes with properly respected and remunerated work. This website lists places in the Edinburgh area where you can buy Palestinian products of all kinds – olive oil to crafts, soap to couscous. If you know of a new stockist which needs adding, or if there is information on the site which you think needs amending, please get in touch.
