Passing out new flyers in New Paltz
on a busy Saturday afternoon
Eight Middle East Crisis members passed out about 250 flyers at the main light in New Paltz. We reworded the flyer to cover several products made in the illegal West Bank settlements, rather than just concentrate on Ahava being distributed by CVS stores.
This freed us to go where the people are. Most people take the flyers. Some thank us, and a few stop to discuss the issues.
The "I Am Jewish" signs provoked the most heated response of the day, a man screaming an obscenity from his car window.
Two students from Saudi Arabia said that they never expected to see this in America, and that they were very thankful for us being there.
