Lebanese Protesters Boycott Estée Lauder

November 11, 2005

LEBANON: On August 9, about 100 people protested outside Aishti, a department store in Beirut, to demand that it stop carrying Estée Lauder products. The protesters accused Estée Lauder of supporting Israel, according to sources. Lebanese and Palestinian flags were waved, and passers-by were told not to spend money at the store. Boycott organizers claimed they targeted Estée Lauder because of company chairman Ron Lauder’s public support of Israel.

Department store employees continued with their business during the protest. “We are carrying international products,” said Tony Salame, chairman, Aishti. “We deal with listed companies. We don’t know who is behind them.”
