PLEASE TAKE 2 MINS TO CALL PUMA TODAY (09.05.22)!
We need as many people calling as possible. This is one of the most effective ways to ensure our message is heard ahead of Puma’s AGM on 11th May 2022.
Simply follow the script below. Please remember that the person answering the phone is not responsible for Puma’s policy. Always be polite, but firm in asking that our message is passed on.
Telephone Puma’s UK Customer service hotline on +44 (0) 203 32 65 481, and read the following script.
I’m calling as a customer deeply concerned about Puma’s current sponsorship of the Israel Football Association, which is complicit in the violation of Palestinian rights.
I understand you are personally not responsible for this, but ask you to make a note and pass my message to Puma management and the Puma supervisory board, ahead of Puma’s AGM next week.
The Israel Football Association operates in illegal Israeli settlements, on land stolen from Palestinians.
Every settlement is a war crime under international law. Settlements force Palestinian families from their homes, crowd Palestinians in densely populated refugee camps, and limit access to clean water and healthcare.
The human rights abuses Palestinians face because of illegal Israeli settlements have been widely documented by a number of human rights monitoring bodies, including Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, and Israel’s leading human rights organisation B’tselem.
Therefore, until Puma ends its unethical sponsorship of the Israel Football Association, I will boycott PUMA products, and I will encourage my friends and family to do the same.
I am appalled that Puma wish to bring international legitimacy to these abuses of Palestinian rights.
Over 200 Palestinian sports teams have called on Puma to end its relationship with the Israeli Football Association. However, their call has so far not been heeded.
Please ensure this message is passed on to Puma’s management in advance of Wednesday’s AGM – until Puma ends its sponsorship with the Israel Football Association, which is complicit in the violation of Palestinian rights, I will boycott PUMA products, and I will encourage my friends and family to do the same.
