#BoycottPuma Round 3: Join Third Global Day of Action, April 25

As Puma’s exclusive licensee in Israel, Delta, was listed in the UN database of complicit settlement companies, groups around the world are preparing for the third day of action protesting Puma's support for Israel's illegal settlements pushing Palestinian families off their land.

Puma is feeling the heat. Let’s turn it up! 

A Puma attorney admitted to a Palestinian rights supporter that the #BoycottPuma campaign is making their lives “miserable.” 

Things are about to get even tougher for Puma! Puma’s exclusive licensee in Israel, Delta, was listed in the UN database of complicit settlement companies. The UN considers all Israeli settlements in the occupied territory a war crime.

Malaysia’s largest university has ended a sponsorship deal with Puma in solidarity with the call from Palestinian teams.

UK football club Chester FC decided not to renew with Puma, citing “ethical working practices" among its selection criteria. Premier League club Liverpool FC, which was in talks with Puma, also opted for another sponsor.

Two successful global #BoycottPuma days of action have seen protests at Puma shops and offices and calls for Puma-sponsored teams to drop Puma in more than 20 countries. The #BoycottPuma hashtag has generated millions of impressions.

It’s time for Round 3.

Puma is the main sponsor of the Israel Football Association (IFA), which proudly includes and advocates on behalf of teams in illegal Israeli settlements pushing Palestinian families off their land.

Puma is profiting from Israel’s ever-expanding illegal settlement enterprise and its denial of basic Palestinian human rights.

On April 25, ahead of Puma’s annual shareholder’s meeting, join human rights groups and sports associations around the world as we step up pressure on Puma.
