Puma is the main sponsor of the Israel Football Association (IFA), which has several football teams in illegal Israeli settlements. Just as the Football Association (FA) is the governing body for football in England, the IFA is the governing body for football in Israel.
Six teams that belong to IFA are located in illegal Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank. Settlements are built up Israeli communities on stolen Palestinian land. Pre-existing Palestinian communities are forcibly removed from their homes and deprived of access to their land.
The United Nations and several Human Rights groups have deemed Israeli settlements as illegal and a violation of international law.
By sponsoring the IFA, PUMA is supporting illegal Israeli settlements which violate Palestinian rights and international law.
More than 200 Palestinian sports clubs have called on PUMA to stop supporting the IFA & violating international law. In 2018, Adidas announced it would no longer sponsor the IFA after receiving 16,000 signatures.
Let’s do this again and stop PUMA from supporting Israel’s illegal occupation of Palestine!

Central Bottling Company (CBC) is an Israeli manufacturer and distributor of soft drinks, dairy products and alcoholic beverages.
Coca-Cola profits from the occupation by working with CBC which sells its drinks in Israel. CBC has a Coca-Cola factory in Atarot illegal Israeli settlement. Israeli settlements are built on land stolen from Palestinians and are illegal under international law.
By having it’s Israeli franchise in illegal settlements, Coca-Cola ignores international law and profits from the illegal occupation.
FOA is calling for Coca-Cola to cut ties with CBC.
Buying from companies which work in settlements such as Coca Cola means we as consumers are turning a blind eye to the illegal occupation of Palestinian land.
The #HandsoffAlAqsa campaign is about educating people about the significance of Masjid al-Aqsa as the third-holiest site in Islam, which is currently physically deteriorating under the Israeli occupation.
We want to put al-Aqsa on the global political agenda in order to protect Masjid al-Aqsa from occupation and preserve this fundamentally sacred space.
Google has yet to acknowledge Palestine on Google Maps. They are knowingly overlooking Palestine’s international status and providing incorrect location information.
Google Maps does not acknowledge routes for Palestinians or the military checkpoints, leaving Palestinians unable to use its maps.
Erasing Palestine contributes to the disregarding of Palestinian rights and the imbalance of power between Israel-Palestine.
Stand up against the erasing of Palestine and sign our ‘Palestine On The Map’ petition to demand Google recognises Palestine on its Maps.
This petition will be addressed to Google’s Ethan Russell and Ronan Harris who have the power to set Google Maps labelling. This petition will be handed into Google’s London offices.
This Ramadan will be different to previous years as we face a health challenge that is affecting the whole world.
One thing that will remain the same is Muslims will hope to break their fast with dates. Many of us unknowingly purchase Israeli dates because we aren’t aware of what to look out for.
Always avoid dates labelled from Israel, West Bank and the Jordan Valley. Dates from here are grown in illegal Israeli settlements on land that has been stolen from Palestinians.
When you do your online shopping, before you add the dates to your cart, see where the dates are from as this information is usually listed. If you do go to the shops then #CheckTheLabel on the packet to boycott Israeli dates.
See examples of dates from Israel in supermarkets online.
