Add comment on:Rights advocates celebrate closing of Leviev Diamonds with 11th holiday caroling protest
On Saturday New York human rights advocates celebrated the closure of the showcase Madison Avenue diamond store of Israeli billionaire and settlement-builder Lev Leviev by singing social justice-themed holiday carols for the eleventh consecutive year outside Leviev’s now former store. The store closure comes as a former employee at Leviev’s company testified in a Manhattan court as part of a bribery trial that in 2008 Leviev’s diamond store attempted to pay off New York City police to quash Adalah-NY’s protests outside Leviev’s store.
