Contact Dunnes Stores Customer Service

leave a comment »

Please contact Dunnes Stores Customer Service to ask them to withdraw Israeli products. Details as follows:

On Saturday 17/01/2009 Dunnes Store announced that they will withdraw all Israeli products nationally and we all rejoiced.

However on following Monday they refused to confirm or comment this to the media. And during the past week Israeli products were found in various Dunnes branches again as if nothing had happened.

We need to put pressure even more than the other chains and demand explanation of this contradiction and scandal. You can do so by phone 01 475 11 11 or email

Shouruq tower, where a few news organisations are based have been hit, the UN is still struggling to get Israel to listen, the OIC still seems like the ‘oh…i see…’, (AJGaza twitter)
And even the bravest of all women, can’t stop the soldiers of Israel from their shooting spree.
