A delegation of the League of Arab Students was present today with the opening of a new branch of the Starbucks enterprise in Antwerp, Belgium. It is generally known that Starbucks supports the Occupation in Palestine, morally and financially. Annually, 10 percent of Starbucks' profit is channeled to Israel and its murderous army. Howard Schultz, the CEO of Starbucks has even been rewarded one of Israel's most decorated PR prices.
In the light of all these developments, six of our members were handing out leaflets with the correct information. Some of the peoples reactions who came out of Starbucks were quite encouraging. Many regretfully said that we handed out the leaflets too late, because they had already consumed inside Starbucks.
Alas, we were also disturbed by the authorities who were keen on knowing our identities and our permissions. We objected by stating that we did not impede anyone from entering Starbucks, nor did we cause an uproar in the Central Station of Antwerp. All this did not help, but such a treatment by the authorities only causes us to be more steadfast. We will undoubtedly proceed with informing the Starbucks customers on the final destination of their money.
