Thom, I was disappointed to hear you read a commercial today for Sodastream. You should know that is a product that is produced on "settlers" land in Palestine. Please support the BDS movement and the Palestinian cause by boycotting this product. Help stop the Occupation and Opression of Palestine. Thank You,

Chuck Adelsman

They closed the west bank plant last year, the (former) Palestinian employees thank you for your support!

And have they turned the land back to the Palestinians?

I would assume they were just leasing the building.

I wonder how the unemployed Palestinians formerly working for Sodastream feel about your boycott?

True. The operators claim it was just a matter of economics--the new plant, in Israeli territory as internationally recognized, is cheaper to run. However 400 former Palestinian employees are now unemployed, and I can't help thinking that BSD had something to do with it.

If Americans Die in a Pandemic - Blame the GOP

Thom plus logo As a possible pandemic looms on the horizon, the United States is the only developed nation in the world without a national healthcare system. Medicare For All is not just about saving as much as half of all of our half healthcare dollars, it's also about national security.
