Sportswear manufacturer @PUMA is the main sponsor for the Israeli Football Association (IFA). The IFA has football clubs in illegal Israeli settlements, where trainings and matches take place on stolen Palestinian land. #BDS
@PUMA For Palestinians living under military occupation, even the simple act of engaging in sports becomes a dangerous activity and a political struggle. #BDS
@PUMA On 7/22/09, Israeli soldiers arrested Palestinian football player Mahmoud Sarsak as he tried to cross from Gaza to the West Bank for a match. Despite unsubstantiated or proven evidence, he was accused of being a "terrorist" and imprisoned for three years. #BDS
@PUMA On 3/30/18, Palestinian football player Muhammad Khalil Obeid was shot in both knees by Israeli snipers while peacefully participating in the Great March of Return protest. His athletic career and mobility were obliterated. #BDS
@PUMA On 1/18/19, Israeli forces fired tear gas into a Palestinian sports stadium for absolutely no reason. A number of Palestinian football players were injured. Such senseless violence by the Israeli military during Palestinian sporting events are common. #BDS
@PUMA #BoycottPUMA until PUMA drop its sponsorship of the Israeli Football Association! #BDS
