#SheBoycotts

Today, International Women’s Day, companies supporting Israeli apartheid like Puma and AXA will be marketing their supposed support for gender equality. Take action now to call for full equality for all women.

Puma is launching “She Moves Us,” a marketing campaign to “celebrate the women who have moved culture and sports forward.”

She Moves Us, but Puma supports illegal Israeli settlements forcing Palestinian women and their families from their homes. She Moves Us, but Puma supports Israel’s military occupation preventing Palestinian women athletes from traveling to matches. She Moves Us, but Puma supports Israeli apartheid, including medical apartheid denying millions of Palestinians vaccines during a pandemic.

Celebrate Palestinian women in sports by joining #SheBoycotts.
 
 
Share the video of Palestinian athletes calling to boycott Puma until it ends support for Israeli apartheid.

Yalla Y'all | Episode 1 | w/ Prof. Alex Lubin


About Yalla Y'all

After last year’s killing of George Floyd and the much-needed national reckoning with racial injustice and white supremacy which has been sparked by his death, AMP decided to better educate itself and its supporters about anti-Black racism, convening a series of powerful monthly webinars entitled #LetsTalkBLM​.


Building on this webinar series, Felicia Eaves, AMP's Black-Palestinian Solidarity Coordinator, undertook an oral history project of Black and Palestinian activists and allies to better document the long-standing history of solidarity between the two communities and how they have supported each others’ struggles.

What made you decide to run for office?

What made you decide to run for office?

ZM
I started organizing around solidarity for Palestinians. I cofounded my college’s Students for Justice in Palestine. And when you get started in that kind of organizing, you typically have zero to negative ambition to political office in the United States.

Soon after I graduated, I worked a bunch of different jobs, as seemingly everyone my age does. And then I heard about a man named Khader El-Yateem, a Palestinian Lutheran minister who was running for city council in Bay Ridge and southern Brooklyn. He was a socialist, he was pro-BDS (Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions), and he was running for local office. These are all things that I had been told could never exist simultaneously in a person. And their existence was not a cause for fear or anxiety among so many but, in fact, of inspiration.

There was definitely a point at which I started to call myself a socialist, and that was Bernie’s 2016 campaign. I ran the paid canvass for that campaign, and that was the beginning of my work within local politics in New York City in a serious way. From there, I became campaign manager for a state senate campaign in the same area, Ross Barkan. I then became a foreclosure prevention counselor at an organization called Chhaya CDC in Jackson Heights. I simultaneously became a DSA (Democratic Socialists of America) point person on the Tiffany Cab├ín for district attorney campaign.

What led me to make the jump to run myself was sustained involvement in DSA, and then a good friend and fellow member asked me at an electoral meeting to run for this seat. That was the first time I thought about mounting a primary challenge. And here I am. ...

Pillsbury products in an illegal Israeli settlement

Did you know that food giant General Mills is manufacturing Pillsbury products in an illegal Israeli settlement, on stolen Palestinian land?
That is not OK.

The Pillsbury factory is in Atarot Industrial Zone, a settlement near the infamous Qalandia Checkpoint in the West Bank, which was annexed into Jerusalem.
The U.N. High Commissioner on Human Rights has listed General Mills as one of the companies supporting illegal Israeli settlements.Our own research shows that the land the factory was built on was confiscated by force. The factory is located on land that used to be part of the town of Beit Hanina, which Israel dissected using the separation wall.

We wrote a letter to Jeff Harmening, the CEO of General Mills, and received no response.

JOIN US!
Write your own letter to Jeff Harmening and tell him: “No Dough for the Occupation!”
Until the company does the right thing, we’re boycotting Pillsbury.

Help us spread the word: 
Share more information about the campaign as well as our campaign website: BoycottPillsbury.org

Good Shepherd Collective

Thanks for following along with us as we share with you more of what the Good Shepherd Collective is about and what we are working toward here, on the ground in the Holy Land.

As Boycott Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) is one of the biggest topics dominating the situation and peoples’ reactions to it both in this land and abroad, we feel that it is important to outline and share our perspective on it.

We at Good Shepherd Collective strongly and affirm people’s right to use economic means of pressure (i.e. boycott, divestment, and sanctions) to express their freedom of thought and conscience.
