Inspiration from April 15th
In Malmö, Sweden, protesters organised a town square gathering with speeches and information handouts. An open letter to H&M board chair Stefan Persson was read out aloud. Three activists also dressed up as Israeli occupation soldiers and went into a nearby H&M store to inform customers about the BDS campaign. More info at Isolate Israel (Swedish).
In Gothenburg, Sweden, protesters performed an alternative fashion show outside the city’s largest H&M store and handed out flyers. Second-hand clothes store Emmaus Björkå, one of the campaign endorsers, participated in the protest by organising a ‘free shop’ with the purpose of providing free clothes as an alternative for customers instead of H&M.
