SodaStream

Please join Adalah-NY in Union Square Sunday, Oct. 26, 2pm (south side of Union Square near Broadway). We will be visiting nearby stores that stock and sell SodaStream and letting owners and managers know why they should stop.

The following week, we hope even more of you can join us by making similar visits to stores in your own neighborhoods. We will use this week of visits to develop our future NYC-based campaign against SodaStream. Stay tuned for an email later this week with more resources and specific information about how to participate.

As several media outlets have reported, SodaStream stocks have been falling. Let’s help them on their way down - and out of New York!

Abstract: 

While voices critical of Israel have grown louder in the US in recent years, a survey published this week revealed that Americans remain steadfast in their support for the Jewish state amid its latest conflict with Palestinian militants.

But while numbers remain largely unchanged, some of those on the pro-Palestinian side are becoming increasingly louder in expressing their opposition to Israel’s actions against its neighbour.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

New York, NY, July 9, 2014— As Israel escalated its assault on the Palestinian people, more than 100 human rights activists gathered Monday evening near New York City’s iconic Brooklyn Bridge to mark the 9th anniversary of the July 9, 2005 Palestinian call for Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) against Israel.

The protestors spoke out against the current onslaught of Israeli military and settler violence against Palestinians, and vowed to intensify BDS campaigns targeting Israel, with the aim of ending Israeli apartheid and occupation. Since Monday, Israeli bombs have killed 40 Palestinians, including 13 children, in the Gaza Strip alone.
