At a meeting held in Brisbane last night, Justice for Palestine Brisbane formally launched their ongoing campaign against Sodastream as part of the international Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement. Sodastream is an Israeli product made an illegal settlement in Occupied Palestine. BDS activists have called for Sodastream to be removed from the shelves of stores across Australia and called upon all people who support justice to respect the boycott call.
In light of the on-going brutal military assault on Palestinians in Gaza and elsewhere, effective actions, particularly in the shape of BDS campaigns, are needed to show solidarity and pressure Israel to end its regime of occupation, colonialism and apartheid. Grassroots BDS actions are urgently needed to hold Israel to account and stop the assaults on the Palestinian people.
The next action in the Boycott Sodastream campaign will be held this Saturday August 23, starting at 11am in King George Square.
