Johannesburg – Activists said on Friday they were ending the #BoycottWoolworths campaign to broaden the campaign to target all Israeli products in any store.

The #BoycottWoolworths campaign has come to an end exactly two years after the National Coalition 4 Palestine (NC4P) called for the complete boycott of Woolworths due to Israeli trade relations in support of Palestine and to raise awareness of “unlawful and inhuman Israeli ‘Apartheid’ policies".

Organisations including the Palestine Solidarity Alliance (PSA), Boycott Divestment Sanctions (BDS) South Africa, Cosatu, ANC Youth League and South African Students Congress (Sasco) endorsed the campaign.
