Educating the Public

On the sands of the Israeli Ministry of Tourism's Tel Aviv Beach, bikini-clad CODEPINK activists covered themselves in mud to expose Israel's dirty occupation of Palestine. The beach event aims to boost U.S. tourism to Israel and clean up Israel’s image just months after its devastating 22-day assault on Gaza that killed more than 1,400 Gazans, injured 5,300, destroyed approximately 4,000 homes and displaced 50,000 people into temporary U.N. shelters.

The bikini-clad CODEPINK women distributed info exposing Israeli Dead Sea cosmetics company AHAVA, which uses mud illegally extracted from and packaged in the Occupied Territories. "Despite its name, (Ahava means "love" in Hebrew), there is nothing loving about a company that profits from stolen resources and oppressed people,” says CODEPINK coodinator Rae Abileah who organized a protest of AHAVA in Tel Aviv last week.“We will paint ourselves with mud to expose the dirty practices of AHAVA and the Israeli government.”
