Ben & Jerry's: Stop Doing Business with Israeli Settlements!

0 have signed. Let’s get to 2,500!

In response to the nationwide protests of the police brutality faced by black Americans, countless companies have released statements in support of civil unrest and demands for societal change. Ben & Jerry's has been among the most vocal, with a recent tweet calling out the "inhumane police brutality that is perpetuated by a culture of white supremacy."  The ice cream company has a prolific track record for calling out domestic human rights violations, yet they seem pretty comfortable profiting off those experienced by Palestinians. 

Since 1987, Ben & Jerry's has licensed its branding, recipes and image rights to a franchise factory in the Israeli city of Kiryat Malachi. Through a partnership with the Isreali supermarket chain Shufersal, they have distributed their products in illegal settlements in the occupied territories of Palestine (otP). A recent report released by the United Nations Human Rights Office listed Shufersal as complicit in "business activities and related issues that raise particular human rights violations concerns."

Ben & Jerry's has no problem telling us actions speak louder than words. Let them know that we hear their hypocrisy loud and clear! Demand that they stop profiting from illegal Israeli settlements by cutting ties with Shufersal!
