We’re making Puma’s CEO nervous. Join the Boycott Puma Day of Action, September 18

Event, Puma

August 17, 2021 / By Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel (PACBI) 

As Palestinians continue to struggle against Israel’s illegal land grabs, and companies like Ben & Jerry’s pledge to end involvement in illegal Israeli settlements, it’s time for all of us to step up the pressure on Puma to end support for Israeli apartheid.

Puma is worried about the growing boycott campaign.

In a leaked internal memo, Puma said Israel’s escalation of violence against Palestinians in May led to an increase in inquiries from its “business partners and ambassadors” about its complicity in Israeli apartheid. Global advocacy organization SumOfUs asked to meet with Puma about its support for illegal Israeli settlements. Not only did Puma accept, but even the agitated CEO joined!

As Palestinians continue to struggle against Israel’s illegal land grabs, and companies like Ben & Jerry’s pledge to end involvement in illegal Israeli settlements, it’s time for all of us to step up the pressure on Puma.
