"I didn't think you were worth it."
—Owner Saul Zabar, when asked why he did not grant our meeting request
Let's show him that it's worth it to stop profiting from occupation! Join the NYC Coalition Against SodaStream* in front of Zabar’s on Earth Day to demand that Zabar’s stop selling SodaStream products. (Facebook event page)
SodaStream, the Israeli-owned water carbonation device, is made in a factory in an illegal Israeli settlement on Palestinian land. SodaStream appeals to customers by marketing itself as environmentally friendly, but a product manufactured in the occupied West Bank—where water is funneled to the settlements and Palestinians are left with only a quarter of what Israelis can use—can’t be “green.” Help us celebrate Earth Day at a fun demonstration featuring songs, bubbles, and petition gathering to show Zabar’s that there's nothing green about stealing land and resources.
Rain Date: Sunday, April 27, 12-2pm.
