Wishing everyone a happy apartheid free Thanksgiving!
We boycott for many reasons, if you haven't already, you can read about some of them here: http://boycott4peace.blogspot.com/search/label/why%20we%20boycott
First on our boycott list for Thanksgiving is the Nestle Corporation, which owns Libby’s Pumpkin Products, Libby’s Juicy Juice (not pictured), and Carnation Milk. ~
“If you should remember only one reason why you should boycott Nestlé for, it would certainly be the Research and Development facility that the Swiss giant has opened in Sderot in 2002, on the stolen Palestinian lands. Products made of cereals are developed there by Nestlé for Israel and the entire world.” http://www.al-kanz.org/2014/10/02/israeli-boycott-nestle/
Another very good point to keep in mind is that “In 1998, Mr. Peter Brabeck-Letmathe on behalf of Nestle, received the Jubilee Award by the Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu. This is the highest tribute ever awarded by the "State of Israel" in recognition of those individuals and organizations, that through their investments and trade relationships, have done the most to strengthen the Israeli economy.” More information and a list of some of the other brands owned by Nestle can be found here: http://www.inminds.co.uk/boycott-nestle.html
If you need more reasons or documentation, please see our blog post, ‘Don’t Fund Real Horror.’ It’s not just about Palestine! http://boycott4peace.blogspot.com/2014/10/dont-fund-real-horror.html
Libby’s--which offers 'Juicy Juice,' canned pumpkin and pumpkin pie filling, a pumpkin bread ‘kit,’ and the pumpkin cheese cake pictured--is a subsidiary of the Nestle Corporation: https://www.verybestbaking.com/Libbys
Carnation Milk, another Nestle brand, offers canned milk, sweetened condensed milk, and the ‘Famous Fudge’ pictured above: https://www.verybestbaking.com/Carnation
The Kraft Brand does its best to fly under the radar, internationally, concerning its connections to Israel, but if you search them out you can find them. “Kraft Foods Israel has . . . launched a series of strategic moves aimed at making its activity in Israel more efficient and raising the public's awareness to the brand name:” http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-3832858,00.html
Kraft Foods also owns 'Country Time Lemonade,' a SodaStream collaborator. More information on SodaStream can be found below in the section on OceanSpray. Here’s a link documenting the Kraft-Country Time connection: http://www.kraftfoodsgroup.com/brands/largest-brands/brands-C/Pages/country-time.aspx
Kraft foods are subject to many boycotts for many other reasons, search on – Kraft Boycott – and you will find lots of reasons to leave their products out of your shopping cart.
OceanSpray is one of SodaStream’s collaborators, and SodaStream is one of the main current focuses of consumer BDS campaigns. This press release outlines the partnership: http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/sodastream-and-ocean-spray-announce-partnership-to-bring-homemade-sparkle-to-cranberry-juice-flavors-193521051.html
More information on the SodaStream boycott can be found here: http://boycott4peace.blogspot.com/2014/11/dont-believe-sodastream.html
There are also reasons to boycott OceanSpray that have nothing to do with SodaStream or Israeli apartheid. Google – Boycott OceanSpray – and see for yourself!
