Inauguration of H&M apartheid store

Inauguration of H&M apartheid store:

"bdsgoteborg | September 13, 2010

8 September 2010, Sweden. Inauguration of Hennes & Mauritz apartheid store. On 26 August 2010, H&M opened its fourth store in the apartheid state of Israel. To mark the occasion, BDS activists in Gothenburg protested outside the local H&M flagship store. The protest theme was a satirical inauguration of the new apartheid store, with an inaugural speech, ribbon cutting ceremony, question competition, checkpoint, and flyers.

H&M is establishing itself in Apartheid Israel with plans to open 7 stores in 2010. H&M's investment contradicts the global boycott, divestment, sanctions (BDS) movement aiming to defeat Israeli apartheid. H&M turns a blind eye to the blatant discrimination of Palestinian citizens of Israel and to the ethnic cleansing and occupation being perpetrated not far from the new H&M stores.

Consequently, 57 organisations from 16 countries stand behind the 'H&M don't buy into occupation' campaign, which has generated world-wide protests and calls for a consumer boycott of H&M until its establishment in Apartheid Israel is cancelled. More info:
