On June 28, Vancouver activists carried out another picket to promote the “Tell BC Govt to Pull Israeli Apartheid Wines” campaign. Hundreds of leaflets were distributed outside a BC liquor store and following that, the action moved to the office of MLA Melanie Mark. Several of her constituents were part of the picket and their concerns are being consistently sidelined by her office, despite her promise to meet with them.
Vancouver’s anti-apartheid stickering squad has also been active, visiting several stores in the month of June to bring home the message that profiting off Israeli apartheid is fundamentally wrong.

BDS Vancouver/Canada Palestine Association on Twitter: “Pull Israeli Apartheid Wines! Our message to the BC Govt and MLAs about their racist double standards was met with “locked doors and an intercom” and an “unwillingness…to dialogue with grassroots people standing up for social justice and Palestinian rights in the community.” https://t.co/0i5ATtS7bf” / Twitter
