 End Air Canada’s Complicity with Israel

Partial Victory.  https://bdscoalition.ca/2017/11/06/air-canada-cancels-maintenance-contract-with-israel-aerospace-industries/

For Immediate Release, Nov. 5, 2017

The Canadian BDS Coalition was recently informed by Air Canada management that the 5-year, multi-million dollar contract with Israel Aerospace Industries Bedek Group [IAI] for heavy maintenance on Air Canada B767 jets was terminated in “early 2017”, with two years remaining. The maintenance work will now be undertaken by another, as yet unnamed, provider in North America.  See HERE

Air CanadaAir Canada is outsourcing maintenance work for its B787 and B767 jets to Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI), a leader in drone production that is wholly owned by the government of Israel.

Learn more about the call on Air Canada to end its complicity with Israel.

Tell the TSO: Don’t play for Israeli apartheid

The Toronto Symphony Orchestra (TSO) will make its first-ever touring appearances in Israel, with performances in Jerusalem on May 11, 2017 and Tel Aviv on May 13, 2017.

The tour, coming just days before the 69th anniversary of the Palestinian Nakba and less than a month before the 50th anniversary of the Israeli occupation of the West Bank, Gaza, and East Jerusalem, ignores the Palestinian-led call for a cultural boycott of Israel, which has been supported by thousands of artists around the world to refuse to play in Israel.

Boycott HP

hpHP provides on-going support and maintenance to a biometric ID system installed in Israeli checkpoints in the occupied West Bank that deprive Palestinians of the freedom of movement in their own land and allows the Israeli military occupation to grant or deny special privileges to the civilians under its control.

HP is also working with the Israeli government to manufacture and distribute a biometric ID system for all Israeli citizens, which categorizes citizens by their ethnic background and serves to discriminate against Arab citizens. HP manages the IT infrastructure for the Israeli navy and supplies the Israeli army with equipment and services specific to the needs of the military occupation. It is involved in the planning, construction, operation and maintenance of the intricate mechanisms of physical separations and restrictions of movement.

HP also supports Israel’s occupation of Palestinian land by providing a computerized storage system to an illegal settlement.

Learn more about HP’s involvement in Israeli’s system of control at whoprofits.org’s Technologies of Control: The Case of Hewlett Packard (HP) page.

Get involved at the US Campaign for Palestinian Rights, the BDS Movement’s Boycott HP campaign or the HP Boycott Campaign. You can also pledge to boycott and support divestment from HP at Jewish Voice for Peace.

Boycott Hyundai

c4km-bwwaaahnkrThe Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions Committee of Palestinian Citizens of Israel (BDS48) calls upon our Palestinian people in the homeland and the Diaspora, the peoples of the Arab world, and people of conscience worldwide to boycott and divest from Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI), until it ends its involvement in Israel’s violations of our human rights, particularly in Jerusalem and the Naqab (Negev).

Learn more about the campaign and get resources on the BDS Movement website.

#Paypal4Palestine

paypallPalestinians living in the occupied West Bank and Gaza are unable to use PayPal services, while Israeli settlers living in the West Bank have full access to the platform.

Not having access to PayPal limits the growth of Palestinian businesses — especially the burgeoning tech sector, which is providing employment and livelihood to Palestinians living under occupation.

A coalition of Palestinian businesses and civil society groups is calling on PayPal to end this discrimination against Palestinians.

Get the latest updates at the PayPal for Palestine Facebook page.

Airbnb Stolen Homes

Stolen HomesThere are 13,000 Airbnb listings in Israel, though investigations have revealed that many of the properties are actually located in settlements built on stolen Palestinian land in the West Bank. By allowing users to list and rent these properties and taking 9-15% from hosts and guests, Airbnb is making money off of Israel’s continued military occupation of Palestinian land and helping facilitate settlement activity.

Get involved at stolenhomes.org or the US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation.
