Puma says it doesn't support teams in illegal settlements. That's its logo on a map of them.

Puma claims it doesn’t support illegal Israeli settlements, but Puma’s logo is on official Israel Football Association map of settlement teams (see above image)

Puma claims it doesn’t support teams in illegal Israeli settlements.

False! 

Puma sponsors the Israel Football Association (IFA). The IFA not only includes teams in illegal Israeli settlements on stolen Palestinian land, it actively advocates to maintain them.

Puma’s logo is directly under an official map of settlement teams and pitches on the IFA website.

Puma can’t deny the obvious. Tweet Puma this virtual tour of its support for Israel’s illegal land grabs.   

Puma only makes these false statements because it is under pressure from the growing #BoycottPuma campaign.

Puma cares deeply about its image as a supposed corporate champion of social justice.

On Palestinian Land Day, and every day, tell Puma it can’t support universal equality while sponsoring Israeli apartheid. 

Palestine Solidarity Network Aotearoa has called on Netball New Zealand to end their sponsorship deal with PUMA until PUMA ends its support for the IFA.

The Silver Ferns represent the best values associated with womens’ sport – high skill levels associated with tenacity, courage and commitment on the netball court. 

This campaign is asking that they show the same character and values off the court – standing with Palestinian sportspeople who face apartheid in sports as awful as that faced by black South Africans suffering under apartheid.
