Viva Palestina Malaysia In Boycott Israel Walkabout

KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 24 (Bernama) — More than 100 members of Viva Palestina Malaysia (VPM), a coalition of NGOs, on Sunday participated in a walkabout for about five kilometres here in support of the efforts towards creating a free and independent state of Palestine.

The walkabout, held at Jalan Changkat Haji Abang Openg here, saw the participants wearing white T-shirts bearing the words “Boikot Israel” (Boycott Israel) as part of a campaign to boycott the products of four multinational companies alleged to be strong supporters of the Zionist regime.

VPM chairman Datuk Adnan Mohd Tahir said the walkabout was the third in the series of the VPM “Boikot Israel” programme, the first having been held in August last year at Menara Dewan Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur (DBKL) and the second in November at the Sunway Pyramid in Selangor.

VPM, formerly known as the Coalition of Malaysian NGOs Against Persecution of Palestinians (Complete), was set up on Jan 5 last year grouping 50 NGOs.

  1. Thanks for reporting this.

    VPM are involved with the global Boycott, Divest and Sanctions Movement (http://www.bdsmovement.net/) and encourage all people on a personal level to boycott companies which support Israel as well as spread swareness of the issues involved.

    More information about what companies to boycott are given here: http://inminds.co.uk/boycott-israel.html or visit the COMPLETE website at: http://completemalaysia.com/wp/
    (the VPM website is under construction – migrating from the COMPLETE site)

    Grab some individual power back for yor self and please initiate a boycott to acting in solidarity with and in the interests of Justice for the Palestinians.
