Honor International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People with Action

Dear Dick,
Boycott RE/MAX
Today, on the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People, member group CodePink is launching an exciting campaign --Boycott RE/MAX: No Open House on Stolen Land -- with a Global Week of Action Nov. 29 - Dec. 5!

RE/MAX is a real estate giant thatmarkets and rents properties in illegal Israeli settlements on occupied Palestinian land. While Palestinian homes and olive groves are bulldozed to make way for new housing units, RE/MAX is profiting from settlement expansion throughout the West Bank, including East Jerusalem.

For the next 7 days, people around the world are coming together to send a message to RE/MAX to stop profiting from occupation and stolen land. Will you join the efforts to condemn RE/MAX worldwide? Here's how:

Participate in Boycott Actions 11/28-12/24
Dear Dick, 
Last month SodaStream, an Israeli company that manufactures home carbonating devices, announced that in 2015 it was going to berelocating its factory currently based in an illegal settlement in the West Bank. The company has been the target of boycott campaignsworldwide for exploiting Palestinian land, labor, and resources.

SodaStream has had a rough year as its stock price has been dropping and its revenues decreasing. This news is just the latest sign that global BDS (boycott, divestment, and sanctions) campaigns are having an impact on companies that profit from Israeli occupation and apartheid.

SodaStream organizers are gearing up to do a Month of ActionNovember 28 (Black Friday) through December 24 to keep the pressure on the company until it actually shuts down the factory and to let consumers know that until that happens, its products are still being manufactured in an illegal settlement.

This is also an opportunity to bring attention to the role SodaStream's factory in the Naqab (Negev) desert plays in the Israeli government's plans to displace Palestinian Bedouins and the unfair labor practices in that factory that impact their workers, many of whom are Bedouin women.

You can start making your own plans too! 
Sign up here to let us know what your group is thinking of doing locally. You can pass out fliers, do flash mobs, and sing holiday carols at stores that sell SodaStream. It would be great to plan actions particularly on Black Friday (11/28), theInternational Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People (11/29), and any other weekend during the month. We will be collecting and promoting actions submitted, as well as sharing resources and action ideas throughout the month. You can look at what was planned last year to get started!

This time of year is also a busy one for online shoppers, withCyber Monday happening December 1. Are you interested in taking part in Twitter or other social media actions? Do you have design experience and would like to help create some graphics? Email me if you want to volunteer!

There will be plenty of other opportunities to take action, including a national call-in day on December 10, Human Rights Day, to the corporate headquarters of stores to urge them to stop selling SodaStream. Macy's has already deshelved SodaStream products, and it is time other stores follow suit. RSVP on Facebook to receive updates about planned actions, find resources, and share pictures and videos.

During last year's holiday season, there were 61 actions in 51 cities spanning 17 states, 6 countries, and 3 continents!

Take action this year to continue the momentum and to ensure SodaStream ends all its complicity in Israel's oppression of Palestinians.

End the Occupation and Halt the Blockade Now

December 1, 2014
Dear Susan,
Join us as CODEPINK and a coalition of organizations launch the new Boycott, Divestment and Sanction (BDS) campaign No Open House on Stolen Land. This campaign targets the Denver-based real estate company RE/MAX for selling homes in illegal settlements in the occupied West Bank. To mark the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian people on November 29, CODEPINK launched the week of action from November 29-Dec 5. Join us on December 5th to demand that RE/MAX cut ties with franchises profiting from the sale of settlement homes and displacement of the Palestinian people.
Join us in San Fransciso! 
>When: Friday, December 5 at 3:00 pm
>Where: 1010 Valencia Street RSVP here
Israeli settlements, which have displaced thousands of Palestinian families, are widely recognized as being in violation of international law. They are also a hindrance to the peace process.
Follow @BoycottREMAX on Twitter and like the No Open House page on Facebook! These campaignsWORK. Be on the right side of history. Tell RE/MAX to stop profiteering from the illegal occupation!
We hope to see you there!

[haw-info] HAW Proposes Work on Israel/Palestine and BDS

Dear members and friends of HAW,
Following the American Studies Association's endorsement of a boycott of Israeli academic institutions, and the ongoing debate in the Modern Language Association over a resolution to censure Israel's violations of academic freedom, the Steering Committee of HAW began considering what (if any) action we should take.
After an extensive discussion, we agreed that the most appropriate process was for the Steering Committee to vote on whether HAW as an organization should publicly endorse BDS ("a campaign of boycotts, divestment and sanctions (BDS) against Israel until it complies with international law and Palestinian rights" -- BDS movement website, http://www.bdsmovement.net/).
The majority of the SC has voted "yes" on this motion, committing us to begin work. This was not a simple decision; some members spoke strongly in favor of the position taken by historians Linda Gordon, Alice Kessler-Harris, and Elaine Tyler May, that an academic and cultural boycott was counter-productive and would be divisive, and that US activists should focus on US policy, in particular its military support for Israel's illegal occupation.  Others countered that we can, in fact, do both, that the boycott was the call of Palestinian civil society which deserves to be heeded, and that it will have the greatest effect inside Israel, in terms of motivating a turn to real negotiations and an end to the occupation.
We support an academic boycott (of institutions & their funding streams, not of individuals) because most large universities in Israel have been helping the Israeli government to use academic research as a cover for propaganda. Israel's government has pushed ahead aggressively on archaeological excavations that expropriate Muslim holy sites and Palestinian village lands, and much “archaeological research” in East Jerusalem and elsewhere has proceeded with the financial backing of right-wing Israeli foundations, through university conduits. The area around the Western Wall, e.g., has been designated an "Archaeological Park" by the Israeli government, consolidating Israeli ownership of a space that has in the past been shared with Arabs; Hebron has similarly designated nearby Palestinian lands “archaeological sites.” The trick is well known and understood by Israelis (see, for instance,http://www.haaretz.com/opinion/.premium-1.567898). We as historians need to counter this falsification of academic research.
What shall we do now?  How should this decision be implemented? Actions in support of the academic and cultural boycott, and more generally against the occupation of Palestinian lands, are an entirely new arena of work for HAW, and we need to recruit a group of members who want to develop a program.   We propose the following steps:
1. Form a working group of people interested in challenging the Israeli occupation of Palestine, and US support for Israel, including work on an academic and cultural boycott;
2.  If you are interested in participating in this group, please send an email to Jeri Fogel (fogelj@mail.montclair.edu) and/or Van Gosse (van.gosse@fandm.edu);
3.  Once HAW's Israel/Palestine Working Group (temporary name) is formed, we will generate an online discussion of its process and goals, and then hold a conference call to discuss more in-depth;
4.  The result will be a plan of work for this and the coming academic year, including possible subgroups.
We welcome your thoughts and queries, and we hope many of you will sign up for the new working group.
Van and Jeri
