Tuesday, September 6, 2011, the greater Boston chapter of CODEPINK: Women for Peace organized a protest inside Lord & Taylor against the Israeli company Ahava Cosmetics as a part of its Stolen Beauty Campaign.
CODEPINK has been pressuring large chains such as Bed, Bath, & Beyond and Nordstrom to stop carrying Ahava products. Ahava is located within an illegal settlement in the West Bank, and much of the natural resources used in the cosmetics come from Palestinian land. The singing protesters prolaimed to Lord & Taylor shoppers: "There is no love in occupation," and urge them to boycott Ahava products.
A video of the protest can be found here:
