Marrickville Council and its Israel Boycott
An online petition has to date netted almost 1300 signatures protesting the resolution passed last month by a Sydney council to introduce boycotts against Israel.
But questions directed to Councillor Cathy Peters [Greens] as to how far she will take the boycott personally remain without precise answers. J-Wire asked the councillor if she would be prepared to cease using her mobile phone, texting, drinking Australian wine [the vines are in the main watered using Israeli drip irrigation techniques], Intel processors not to mention innumerable contributions used daily by the Australian medical profession.
The latest addition to the list of popular Israeli-designed technology in use across the globe is the Kindle e-book reader…distributed by Amazon in the U.S. but designed in Herzliyah.
As we await for Councillor Peters’ shopping list of what not to buy, J-Wire urges its readers to visit the online petition and, if you disagree with a council involving itself on the world stage, add your say to the petition which will eventually presented to to the Minister for Local Government, Barbara Perry.
