#BOYCOTTWOOLWORTHS LETTER SENT TO US ARTIST PHARRELL WILLIAMS
BDS South Africa's spokesperson Kwara Kekana has written, emailed and sent via registered-mail a five page letter to US artist Pharrell Williams. BDS South Africa is calling on Williams to postpone his collaboration with Woolworths till the company ends its trade with Israel. BDS South Africa has also requested to meet with the artist to discuss the the issue in person.
According to various reports, Woolworths has signed-up Pharrell Williams in its "Are You With Us?" marketing campaign in an attempt to counter the #BoycottWoolworths campaign.
Due to its trade with Israel, Woolworths is currently facing the largest consumer boycott South Africa has seen since the end of Apartheid. In August 2014 a call for the complete boycott of Woolworths till it ends its Israeli trade was made by various SA organizations led by the National Coalition 4 Palestine (a coalition consisting of South African civil society organizations, trade unions, youth movements and other groups).
