Tap into Justice: Boycott SodaStream
Date:30 January 2013
Launching an Interfaith Campaign
Friends of Sabeel--North America is proud to join with Christians, Jews, and Muslims nationwide to launch the first ever interfaith boycott of a product made in an Israeli settlement on occupied Palestinian territory. The launch coincides with Super Bowl festivities in order to publicize the interfaith boycott of SodaStream, made in the industrial sector of the illegal settlement of Ma'ale Adumin. The product is to be advertised in the fourth quarter of the game.
What can you do to help?
We urge you to sign the petition endorsing the boycott, found on the Boycott Sodastream website.
Join us and others across the country to host what the U.S. Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation is calling a "Fizzless for Freedom" Super Bowl party.
Sign up and invite friends to bring their computers or tablets and have fun with social media ideas that the U.S. Campaign will send during the game.
See the list of endorsers and join us in the first ever interfaith boycott of a product made on illegally confiscated land.
When our grandchildren ask us what we did to protest the immoral and illegal occupation, we can point to this as one of the ways that people of faith worked together to help bring an end to the suffering in the Holy Land.
Take the First Step: Social Media for Social Justice
A How-To by Andrea Whitmore
Twitter. It has 200 million users, and has been instrumental in movements and revolutions around the world. If you watch any of the PBS series The Abolitionists, you'll note that communicating about slavery was one of their most productive methods of raising awareness. We can use Twitter to do the same for our modern-day cause. Believe me, it is not something I ever thought I'd do, but since starting to do it, I've become more and more aware of how effective it can be.
Why do I want you to Tweet this weekend? To help with advocacy for the cause of human rights. More specifically, to be ready for any big effort, such as the upcoming boycott actions that the Interfaith Boycott Coalition, of which FOSNA is a part, is launching now.
