Omaha's Black Friday Protest to Boycott SodaStream

Action Alert!!! 
Omaha's Black Friday Protest to Boycott SodaStream

When: Black Friday (Fri., Nov. 29th)
Time: TBA
Where: Corner of 72nd and Dodge 

This holiday shopping season, keep SodaStream off the shopping list and on the boycott list!  Friday, Nov. 29th marks the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People, as well as Black Friday, the biggest shopping day of the year. 

A national boycott of SodaStream is being organized by an interfaith coalition for Black Friday. 

Why? SodaStream is produced, in part, on an Israeli settlement, illegal under international law. 

Goal: Target a specific product produced on settlements and a specific store (Target) so that our message is unified and heard. 

Join us to pressure Israel to end its illegal occupation of Palestinian land!

The primary CORPORATE FOCUS of the Day of Action will be Target.  For more than a year, from Sacramento, CA to Washington, DC, Palestine solidarity organizations have been challenging Target and other U.S. vendors asking them to stop shelling SodaStream products, which are produced in an illegal Israeli settlement through the exploitation of Palestinian land, labor, and resources.  Last month, Friends of Sabeel sent a letter to the CEO of Target, outlining these grievances.  Other faith communities from the Interfaith Boycott Coalition and beyond have signed on in support.
