Philly BDS offers, “Recycle, Hack, Destroy”- a light video at a dark time

Philadelphia Justice for Palestine - Thu, 2014-07-10 10:08

By Susan Landau

http://youtu.be/JSMfHRtisKk

As yet another horrific Israeli military offensive escalates in Gaza, human rights

activists advocating for Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) of Israel stay

the course. It is not only the Israeli airstrikes on Gaza that are killing Palestinians.

Routinely the unjust, indiscriminate, and systemic Israeli policies of military

occupation and apartheid destroy Palestinian lives. The lure of jobs in illegal Israeli

industrial zones, intended to support the economic base of Israeli settlements, is

a case in point. Palestinians provide a captive workforce with few employment

alternatives to the factory jobs such as in the settlement Ma’aleh Adumim where

Sodastream products are made. Low wages and the absence of worker’s rights

eviscerate any possibility for the development of a viable Palestinian economy and a

just peace.

 

Today’s release of “Recycle, Hack, Destroy” by The Philadelphia Coalition for

Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (Philly BDS) is part of the planned national week

of actions by “We Divest” and supports the local Philadelphia chapter of Jewish

Voice for Peace (JVP-Philly).

 

In the tradition of Code Pink’s mock weddings and the US Campaign to End the

Occupation’s petitions, demonstrations, and spoof ads, “Recycle, Hack, Destroy”

is the latest in an alternative stream – creative protests staged by BDS activists to

“burst the (Sodastream) bubble.”

 

Black clouds have no silver linings. The Palestinian call in 2005 to the international

community to develop campaigns of boycott, divestment, and sanctions until Israel

complies with international law offers a nonviolent response to egregious Israeli

crimes against humanity. Because the Israeli government provides economic

incentives, including tax deductions, for businesses operating in West Bank

settlements, BDS activists have made Sodastream a target of an international

consumer boycott.

 

Once again Israel claims “All options are on the table,” including the call up of

40,000 reserve troops. Take Sodastream off the table and consider a nonviolent

option, BDS. The BDS movement too is prepared for a “long, continuous, and strong

campaign.”
