Portland Boycott SodaStream Coalition
Portland’s SodaStream Boycott Team is joining the National SodaStream Boycott events beginning on Nov. 29, 2013. Click Here to signup to our campaign: http://www.auphr.org/pdxbdsinvite.php
For more than a year, religious and human rights organizations across the country have urged Macy’s and Target to de-shelve SodaStream products because of SodaStream’s complicity with Israel’s occupation and settlements. This fall, Friends of Sabeel – North America began a “SodaStream 14” campaign to send letters to CEOs of Macy’s, Target and other corporations. Local Human Rights organizations and concerned citizens have also contacted the downtown Macy’s and Target Galleria stores, providing information about SodaStream’s role in the military occupation of Palestine, and requesting that these stores de-shelve SodaStream products. Leafleting and speaking with customers who shop at these stores is a logical and necessary next step. Click here to see the letters we sent locally to Target or Macy’s.

Join us to boycott the sale of SodaStream at Macy’s and Target in downtown Portland.
We will meet outside of Target (939 SW Morrison, Portland, OR 97205) and go from there.
Then we will do an action from 1-2:30pm each Saturday before Christmas: Dec 7th, Dec 14th, and Dec 21st and 26th.
