A west country MP is asking people to send a message to Israel by boycotting goods coming from the country. The MP for Wells, Tessa Munt says she's hearing from people across the area that are angry and upset about what is happening abroad.

"This summer, it’s not the potholes, traffic lights or broadband, not even poor local planning which is dominating discussions – although they are all high on the list and must be dealt with.

This summer, the majority of people I meet out and about are disturbed, upset and angry.

It’s clear that Israel has crossed a line.

The use of a boycotts is one example of non-violent action and whilst a protest march is effective in

raising awareness and publicity, a boycott hits states and organisations where it hurts most – the wallet.

Israel exports all sorts all sorts of things from food to financial services into the UK and we all have a choice about how we spend our money."
