SodaStream’s main production site is in Mishor Edomim, an Israeli settlement industrial park located in the West Bank.
The land where the SodaStream factory is located was illegally confiscated by the Israeli military occupation authorities from Palestinian owners. Israeli settlements are an impediment to peace and violate international law.
Since 1968 the US government has called on Israel to stop building and expanding settlements in the West Bank.
Companies should not profit from products that are made on stolen property or that perpetuate the Israeli occupation of the West Bank
SodaStream Boycott – INTERFAITH BOYCOTT COALITION
You may have heard about SodaStream recently, it is a company which produces devices for home carbonating your drink. You may or may not have heard that the company is based in an illegal settlement in violation of international law.
As ‘Trading Away Peace’ – a report by 22 NGOs – states:
“The main factory is in the Mishor Adummim industrial zone in the West Bank. Mishor Adummim is part of Ma’ale Adummim, one of the largest settlements strategically located east of Jerusalem, the establishment of which is considered one of the largest expropriations of private Palestinian land during the occupation.118
SodaStream pays taxes to Ma’ale Adummim Municipality; its revenues are thus directly funding this settlement, which effectively bifurcates the West Bank and is considered to be a major obstacle to any future peace agreement.”
