Act for Palestine Calls on PUMA to End Complicity with Israeli Apartheid

M.S | DOP -

The Act For Palestine Foundation strongly denounced PUMA’s 75th Annual General Meeting in Germany with its shareholders, discussing profits and celebrating its 75th anniversary, as it is a major international sponsor of the Israel Football Association (IFA).

It said that PUMA is celebrating its 75th anniversary while Palestinians instead are marking 75 years of apartheid Israeli occupation’s oppression and dispossession.

“PUMA supports Israel’s illegal settlements on stolen Palestinian land. It operates in Israel’s illegal settlements, built on stolen Palestinian land,” stated Act For Palestine.

It added, “Israeli settlements force Palestinians to leave their homes and steal their natural resources like water and farmland.”

In conclusion, Act For Palestine expressed, “Palestinians and people of conscience around the world are calling on PUMA to end its complicity and its shameful contract with the Israel Football Association that contributes to shedding more Palestinian innocent blood in occupied Palestine.”
