Apartheid Made Exciting? SodaStream Month of Action

In October 2014, SodaStream, an Israeli company that manufactures home carbonating devices, announced that in 2015 it was going to be relocating its factory currently based in an illegal settlement in the West Bank. SodaStream has had a rough year as its stock price has been dropping and its revenues decreasing.

SodaStream organizers are gearing up for a Month of Action November 28 (Black Friday) through December 24 to keep the pressure on the company until it actually shuts down the factory and to let consumers know that until that happens, its products are still being manufactured in an illegal settlement.

This is also an opportunity to bring attention to the role SodaStream's factory in the Naqab (Negev) desert plays in the Israeli government's plans to displace Palestinian Bedouins and the unfair labor practices in that factory that impact their workers, many of whom are Bedouin women.
