Take action against Puma’s support of Israeli apartheid

Puma is involved in multiple activities in illegal Israeli settlements on stolen Palestinian land. 

Israel’s military occupation and settlements, considered war crimes in international law, force Palestinian families from their homes, crowd Palestinians in densely populated refugee camps and limit access to clean water and healthcare.

Puma is listening. A Puma lawyer told us that our calls to boycott Puma are making their lives “miserable.” 

Ending Puma’s already deeply immoral support for Israel’s violations of Palestinian rights is more urgent than ever.

Take just a few minutes to let Puma shareholders know that supporting Israeli apartheid is not only immoral, but also comes with costs.

When you call Puma or Melbourne City FC, please remember that the customer service helper is not responsible for Puma’s policy. Always be polite, but firm in asking that our message is passed on.

 ————————————————————————————

Global sportswear manufacturer Puma is involved in violations of international law and human rights.

Puma is a major sponsor of Melbourne City FC, Carleton Football Club and Richmond Football Club

We aim to raise awareness of Puma’s support of the Israeli Football Association (IFA) and the ethical implications of this relationship.

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

We expect Melbourne City FC, Carleton and Richmond Football Clubs to respect human rights here and overseas. Puma’s sponsorship of the IFA makes it complicit in Israel’s violations of Palestinians’ human rights. We call on Melbourne City FC to respect international law and equal human rights and end its association with Puma.
