No Settlement Profiteering on Stolen Land

==== From End the Occupation ====
Challenge RE/MAX's Settlement Profiteering!

RE/MAX U.S. real estate corporation is selling and profiting from Jewish-only settlement homes in the West Bank on stolen Palestinian land. Member group CodePink is asking your help in shutting RE/MAX down! 

As part of the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement, the "Boycott RE/MAX: No Open House on Stolen Land" campaign is staging a national mobilization at the RE/MAX R4 Convention March 2-4, 2015 at the Mandalay Bay Resort, Las Vegas -- the company's largest annual gathering with over 6,000 RE/MAX representatives in attendance from more than 60 countries around the world -- to protest RE/MAX's selling of stolen Palestinian land in the West Bank. Activists will be staging a three-day presence outside the event, which includes speakers like top RE/MAX executives, professional quarterback Peyton Manning, and even a performance by Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler (unless he cancels... see petition below!).

You are invited to join these three days of action that will include direct action on the Vegas Strip, vigils, workshops and community-building spaces. Register now and learn about travel caravans.

Stage your own action at a local RE/MAX office near you.

RE/MAX is selling and profiting from settlement properties that are illegal under international law. RE/MAX International, through RE/MAX Israel, currently operates an office in settlement Ma'ale Adumim and sells lavish homes and apartments in all the major settlements. While RE/MAX agents do business, Palestinian homes are bulldozed to make way for Israeli settlers.

RE/MAX is directly and knowingly profiting off of settler-colonialism and BDS activists are going to #ShutDownREMAX. Hope you can join them!
