Petition Statement

Oxfam did the right thing by cutting ties with celebrity Scarlett Johansson when she refused to end her role as a "global ambassador" for the Israeli company SodaStream, which is based in an illegal Israeli settlement in the West Bank.
There are currently 11,819 signatures. NEW goal - We need 15,000 signatures!

Petition Background

Oxfam has cut ties with celebrity Scarlett Johansson over Johansson's new role as a "global ambassador" for the Israeli company SodaStream, which is based in an illegal Israeli settlement in the West Bank. As Oxfam stated:

"Johansson's role promoting the company SodaStream is incompatible with her role as an Oxfam global ambassador. Oxfam believes that businesses, such as SodaStream, that operate in settlements further the ongoing poverty and denial of rights of the Palestinian communities that we work to support. Oxfam is opposed to all trade from Israeli settlements, which are illegal under international law."

Thank Oxfam for taking this principled stand by signing our petition.
