Join us in Manchester on the International Day of Action to boycott Puma Saturday 15th June.
Demonstration begins 12noon Piccadilly Gardens.
The day of action follows the call from over 200 Palestinian Sports Clubs urging Puma to end their sponsorship of the Israeli Football Association (IFA) which incorporated teams from Israel’s illegal settlements in the occupied Palestinian Territories.
Israeli settlements are illegal land grabs that form an integral part of Israel’s occupation infrastructure – pushing indigenous Palestinian families off their land, robbing natural resources, and denying Palestinians their rights including right of movement. All Israeli settlements are considered war crimes under international law.
Puma is the main sponsor of the Israel Football Association (IFA), which includes football clubs based in illegal Israeli settlements on stolen Palestinian land.
As one of the world’s top athletic apparel makers, Puma’s sponsorship brings international legitimacy to the IFA and helps maintain its direct involvement with violations of human rights and international law off the field.
BOYCOTT Puma until they end their sponsorship of Israel Football Association and links with Israeli apartheid.Details
