ACTION ALERT: #BoycottPuma twitter storm

On the day of PUMA’s AGM, taking place on Thursday 18th April, join the #BoycottPuma twitter storm calling on PUMA to end its complicity with Israeli apartheid.

Background info

Global sportswear manufacturer Puma is involved in violations of international law and human rights. Puma is the main sponsor of the Israel Football Association (IFA), which includes teams in Israel’s illegal settlements on occupied Palestinian land.

Israel’s military occupation expels Palestinian families, including children, from their homes to give way for these settlements. Israeli settlements are considered war crimes under international law.

More than 200 Palestinian sports clubs have called on Puma to end the sponsorship deal and stop supporting Israel’s illegal land grabs.

Companies like @PUMA who seek to support “universal equality” should not be sponsoring and financing the @ISRAELFA who have teams based on stolen Palestinian land. Until @PUMA drop @ISRAELFA, I support the call to #BoycottPuma #DropPuma

.@Puma cannot claim to support “universal equality” while sponsoring Israeli teams based on stolen Palestinian land! Palestinian athletes are calling on @Puma to end its support for illegal Israeli settlements – join them! #BoycottPuma

Whilst @PUMA remain proud sponsors of Israeli apartheid, people of conscience are left with no choice but to support the Palestinian call to #BoycottPuma. The enjoyment of sports should not be at the expense of human rights. #DropPuma

On the day of @PUMAs AGM, I call on @PUMA to end their sponsorship of Israeli settlement teams, based on stolen Palestinian land. #BoycottPuma

I respect the call from Palestinian athletes for the international community to #BoycottPuma, and for sports clubs/teams to #DropPuma as their sponsor, until @PUMA drops its sponsorship of Israeli teams on stolen Palestinian land. Join the campaign and #BoycottPuma

The @ISRAELFA is violating international law by sponsoring teams on stolen Palestinian land! @Puma must live up to its stated commitment to human rights and end its partnership with the @ISRAELFA until they respect international law #BoycottPuma

Israel is using sport to perpetuate its crimes against the Palestinian people – the @ISRAELFA includes 6 teams based on stolen land! @Puma cannot support equality and human rights whilst sponsoring @ISRAELFA – time to #BoycottPuma!
