Local branch members of Ireland Palestine Solidarity Campaign (I.P.S.C.) asked shoppers outside Tesco on Strand Road at the weekend to boycotts goods from Israel.
The Derry I.P.S.C. also secured more than 500 signatures of support for their bid to transform Derry into an ‘apartheid free zone’.
The local members are protesting over Israel’s treatment of people living in Gaza and Palestine.
“Our aim is to bring public awareness to the Israeli Products that Tesco and other retailers in Derry are selling,” said a I.P.S.C. Derry spokesperson.
“We have a petition called ‘Make Derry an apartheid free zone’ and we secured more than 500 signatures inside hours. There was great support from the public. We labelled Israeli goods in the supermarket and presented a letter of protest to the manager. We hope to have a meeting with management in the near future,” added the spokesperson.
