Two people have been arrested after allegedly chaining themselves inside the London branch of an Israeli cosmetics store.
Gwendolen Wilkinson, 20, from Newport and Matthew Richardson, 24, from Sheffield have been charged with aggravated trespass at Ahava in Monmouth Street, Covent Garden.
They will appear at Highbury Corner Magistrates’ Court later this month.
Protesters demonstrate outside Ahava every other weekend, claiming it mislabels its products “Made in Israel” when they are made in Mitzpe Shalem, an Israeli settlement on the West Bank.
