Chalking The Boycott
By Khaled Hanbali
The London School of Economics (LSE) Palestine Society's ongoing campaign to get Eden Springs off campus has taken to the streets!
Students are lobbying the School not to purchase water coolers and bottled water from Eden Springs UK, which is part of the Israeli company Mey Eden, which appropriates and sells water from sources in Syrian land that has been controversially occupied since 1967.
The campaign has been supported by a majority of the student body. Ongoing talks are taking place to reach an agreement where Eden Springs is boycotted from campus, other London universities are also launching their own Boycott Eden Springs Campaign.
