You may know that in 2005, Palestinian civil society issued a call for a campaign of boycotts, divestment and sanctions (BDFS) against Israel until it complies with international law and Palestinian rights.  Across the country this month, organizations are taking actions to urge shoppers to boycott SodaStream products and asking stores to stop selling them.  Stores that carry SodaStream include Target, Office Depot, Staples, Bed Bath & Beyond, and more.  


Background


SodaStream is an Israeli corporation whose main production plant is located in the Mishor Adumim industrial park, part of illegal Israeli settlement in the West Bank. Activists have targeted the corporation for reaping the financial benefit of tax incentives while being complicit in the Israeli occupation of Palestine and violations of Palestinian rights to freedom, justice and self-determination.


Over the last year, a powerful grassroots movement for Palestinian human rights has succeeded in putting the heat on corporatehuman rights violator SodaStream. SodaStream's stocks have fallen dramatically, while Macy's, a major department store in the US has de-shelved their roduct. In October,

SodaStream announced that it would close its factory in the West Bank settlement of Mishor Adumim. However, SodaStream has yet to close its factory in the West Bank, as promised, and has announced plans to open a factory in the Negev/al-Naqab where they would receive more Israeli government subsidies to contribute to the ongoing displacement of Palestinian Bedouins. Palestine solidarity activists have vowed to continue their boycott until SodaStream demonstrates it is no longer benefiting from displacing Palestinians and
abusing their labor.
