Join Boycott Carrefour Global Week of Action - May 21-26
Join the Global Week of Action against the French group "Carrefour '' from May 21-26, calling on the France-based multinational retailer to end its complicity with apartheid Israel and its illegal settlement enterprise.
Israel’s apartheid forces have murdered over 150 since the beginning of this year. Land theft, annexation, ethnic cleansing, home demolitions and settlement expansion are increasing at an alarming rate. Israel is only able to maintain its oppressive regime over the Indigenous Palestinian people because of international complicity of states, corporations and institutions. Carrefour is one of these complicit international companies. It is time for us to take a stand for justice!
On Tuesday 9th of May, the same day that the Israeli government decided to launch its latest aggression on Gaza, resulting in the death of 34 Palestinians including children, Carrefour group opened 50 branches to serve customers in apartheid Israel.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the Minister of Economy visited one of Carrefour’s future sites and thanked Carrefour for this move. By working with this government, Carrefour Group is directly supporting Israel’s most far-right, racist, fundamentalist government, helping it to save itself from the economic crisis.
Let's intensify our pressure on Carrefour to end its complicity in Israel’s apartheid!
The BDS movement have called on supporters of Palestinian rights worldwide to #BoycottCarrefour, until it:
Ends its franchise agreement with Israel’s Electra Consumer Products and its subsidiary Yenot Bitant; and
Stops all sales of products from illegal Israeli settlements in the thousands of supermarkets and convenience stores it operates around the world.
Take action now! Join the #BoycottCarrefour Global Week of Action
Carrefour relies on its image and reputation to attract customers. Effective grassroots campaigns succeeded in forcing huge international companies such as Orange and Veolia to end this complicity in Israeli war crimes against Indigenous Palestinians, let’s pressure Carrefour to follow!
