Open Shuhada Street protest Ahavas false labelling!
Open Shuhada Street held a protest outside of Wellness Warehouse situated in Cavendish, Claremont.
The event was held to protest the sale of Ahava beauty products. Ahava is made in the Occupied Palestinian Territories in the illegal Israeli settlements of Mitzpe Shalem and Kayla. These settlements are illegal under international law and pose a great obstacle to peace and stability in the region. This is due to the construction of roads that are for Israeli settler use only, walls that destroy homes, and violence between the IDF supported settlers and Palestinians.
Ahava is marked Made in Israel. This is false labeling as it is made in the Occupied West Bank and illegal under international and South African trade law.
