Aug 12, 2021 - On the steps of the NY Public Library on Fifth Avenue. A protest against Ben & Jerry’s Jew-hating decision to boycott Jews in Israel.
Activists handed out free ice cream, t-shirts, and flyers explaining how Ben & Jerry's de-legitimizes Jewish self-determination and encourages Jew-hatred. By talking face-to-face with members of the public, they were able to make the case against Jew-hatred and explain how Ben & Jerry's bigotry in Israel harms Jews.

B&J's announced on July 19 that it would no longer sell ice cream in the 'Occupied Palestinian Territory (OPT)' due to inconsistencies with their values, and they would stay in 'Israel through a different arrangement.' COWARDS.
