HOW THE 🇦🇲 DIASPORA CAN #FreeArmenianPOWs WITH BOYCOTT CAMPAIGNS.

Step 1. IDENTIFY TARGETS.

The target is Azerbaijan, but how do you leverage a country which exports nothing but oil & tomatoes?

By joining w/ Palestine and boycotting Israel, which trades arms for AZ oil.
🇦🇲 Step 2. STOP BUYING THESE GOODS.

ISRAEL FRUIT & VEGETABLES are one of Israel’s biggest exports and all Israeli agricultural exporters are complicit in Israel’s violations of international law as they operate on stolen Palestinian land.
🇦🇲 Step 2. STOP BUYING THESE GOODS.

CATERPILLAR bulldozers are regularly used in the demolition of Palestinian homes and farms and in Israel’s massacres in Gaza.
🇦🇲 Step 2. STOP BUYING THESE GOODS.

HP - Hewlett Packard helps run the ID system that Israel uses to restrict Palestinian movement. For more information, see bdsmovement.net/boycott-hp
🇦🇲 Step 2. STOP BUYING THESE GOODS.

PUMA sponsors the Israel Football Association, which includes teams in Israel’s illegal settlements on occupied Palestinian land. For more information, see: bdsmovement.net/boycott-puma
🇦🇲 Step 2. STOP BUYING THESE GOODS.

SODASTREAM home drinks machines are one of Israel’s best known exports.
🇦🇲 Step 2. STOP BUYING THESE GOODS.

AHAVA cosmetics are another of Israel’s best known export companies.
🇦🇲 Step 2. STOP BUYING THESE GOODS.

SABRA hummus is a joint venture between PepsiCo and the Strauss Group, an Israeli food company that provides financial support to the Israel Defense Forces.
🇦🇲Step 3. TWEET & SPREAD AWARNESS ABOUT WHY YOU AREN'T BUYING THESE GOODS.

You could use #BDS and #BDSAzerbaijan in addition to #FreeArmenianPOWs in your tweets.
🇦🇲Step 4. FORMULATE DEMANDS FOR STOPPING THE BOYCOTT AND SUBMIT THESE TO THE 🇮🇱 & 🇦🇿GOVERNMENTS

Diaspora orgs. such as the @ANCA_DC @agbu @ArmenianCouncil and @ARAMAC_DC can take the lead for all these steps.

The Armenian government doesn't even need to get involved! ;)

One problem the Pashinyan government faces is that all of the institutions and legal mechanisms at its disposal for making AZ release the POWs are being deployed at the moment with little effect for the time being. 1/6
The reason for this is that the power relationships which guarantee such 'contractual' agreements (such as the HR treaties to which AZ is also subject) are not in favor of the Armenian state:

AZ has a history of ignoring the ECHR and getting away with it.

2/6
Generally speaking there are two direct ways of turning that around: either by military means or economic means.

Given that the first isn't an option at the moment, the Armenians cause is left with the second. 3/6

WHAT IS THE AZERBAIJANI LAUNDROMAT?

1. "The Azerbaijani Laundromat is a complex money-laundering operation and slush fund that handled $2.9 billion over a two-year period through four shell companies registered in the UK."

2. "Between 2012 and 2014, Azerbaijan’s kleptocratic ruling elites pumped the money through the companies’ Estonian bank accounts.

The companies’ true owners were hidden behind unknown offshore shareholders." Image
3. "Even as the Azerbaijani government arrested activists and journalists wholesale, members of the country’s ruling elite were using a secret slush fund to pay off European politicians, buy luxury goods, launder money, and otherwise benefit themselves. ImageImageImage
