Jerry Greenfield of Ben and Jerry ice cream came to Portland last week for ‘free ice cream day’.
But in addition to the line of people who wanted a free ice cream at Pioneer square, Jerry also faced some protesters, who challenged the company’s decision to maintain stores in Israeli settlements built on stolen Palestinian land.
KBOO’s Don Merrill asked Jerry about the issue while he was in town.
Jerry said, in response, "I think those people who are protesting Ben and Jerrys are doing exactly what they should be doing. I'm happy they're doing it, and it's gonna push Ben and Jerry's to find a good answer".
