Many Brixton stores sell dates for the holidays. The very best are Medjoul dates from the Jordan Valley.
Unfortunately those from Nour in Brixton Market, pictured in the December Brixton Bugle and Blog, are produced by illegal Israeli settlers on Palestinian land, watered by diverting water from nearby villages which now have to rely on expensive water tankers.
Israel is deceitfully selling these dates without naming a land of origin. Please don’t buy those with the trademarks in the image.
Lambeth & Wandsworth Palestine Solidarity Campaign asked Nour and Aziz stores in Brixton to discontinue selling them in early December,
Buy Palestinian dates, available in Brixton Foods in Electric Ave. Common brands are Yaffa, Zaytoun and The Taste of Palestine. All clearly state they are from Palestine.
