Thousands worldwide mark Boycott PUMA Global Day of Action to slam company’s Israeli soccer sponsorship

Thousands of activists around the world have taken part in the Boycott PUMA Global Day of Action against the German sportswear company over its sponsorship of the Israel Football Association (IFA), which operates in Israeli settlements.

The protest rallies were held on Saturday after the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement called on supporters from around the world to join thousands of people on the Global Day of Action and urge PUMA to end its support for the Israeli regime, Palestine’s official Wafa news agency reported. 


“PUMA’s greenwashing is dangerous. It does a disservice to authentic grassroots efforts for climate justice for all and allows Israel’s human rights abuses against Palestinians to continue,” the BDS said in a statement.


“Groups around the world will join the #BoycottPUMA Global Day of Action. Join them online to let PUMA know that you stand with the growing number of people and movements around the world that recognize Palestine as a climate justice issue,” it added.


Members and supporters of the Palestine Solidarity Campaign (PSC) held vigils across the United Kingdom, as they informed shoppers they should not buy goods from Puma because of its complicity in Israel’s crimes.
