SodaStream At Cannes

The American Pavilion at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival chose to feature SodaStream as its premier sponsor. Activists used this as an opportunity to pressure them about shining the spotlight on this occupation profiteer. 

Member group Jewish Voice for Peace-DC Metro Chapter made this great video. 

More than 15 organizations endorsed our press release "International Coalition Criticizes SodaStream Sponsorship of the American Pavilion at Cannes Film Festival." You can read the French version here and the Italian version here. 

And our member group The Palestine Freedom Project set up a Twitter action using these sample tweets:
