> template if you so desire):
> *The Los Angeles chapter of the International Jewish Anti-Zionist Network
> (IJAN) would like to offer our enthusiastic support and congratulations to
> the Olympia Food Co-op in their recent public commitment to support the 2005
> call from over 170 Palestinian civil society organizations for Boycott,
> Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) against Israel. In keeping with its mission
> to support efforts to foster a more socially and economically egalitarian
> society and in the historical tradition of co-operatives' concern for
> community and promotion of social justice, the Olympia Food Co-op's support
> of BDS marks yet another important step in the international movement to
> support justice in Palestine and condemn Israeli apartheid.*
> *We commend your decision, and look forward to visiting your Co-op the
> next time we are in Olympia.
