    This afternoon session was introduced by Syed Ikhlaas from MADE in Europe, a Muslim-led movement of young people who want to see our community leading the fight against global poverty and injustice.

    Syed talked about how MADE promoted Palestinian products as an alternative to Israeli or other countries produce, in order to support Palestinians. The point was raised that some retailers who have been targeted under the BDS movement also retail Palestinian products.

    It was argued that providing Palestinians with an opportunity to trade can help alleviate some issues such as poverty.

    The session also talked briefly about how the Muslim faith lends itself to ethical consumption due to some of the teaching from the Quran.

    do they say anything about the issue of halal meat?
    that's one area that doesn't lend itself to ethical consumerism unless you eschew it :/

    there's some reporting recently about the European live export trade, animals from hungary and Romania been shipped to Israel (for non stun killing) and gaza (for non stun killing). the filming in gaza was particularly horrific with untrained staff etc
