BDS Protest in Vancouver Against SodaStream

A group of 20 members of the extreme left today (Tuesday) staged a protest to urge a national boycott campaign against SodaStream products, according to a report by Shalom Toronto.

The demonstration was initiated by the “Canadian Boycott Coalition”, which is comprised of the “Independent Vancouver Jewish Voices ( IJV ) and the Boycott Campaign Against Israeli Apartheid (BIAC) .

The demonstrators are claiming that the boycott is due to the location of SodaStream in Mishor Adumim, of the “illegally occupied West Bank”, and that the PA workers are being abused by low wages an employment conditions.

A month ago Jewish and non-Jewish participants demonstrated against the pro-Palestinian BDS supporters at a Hamilton, Ontario tourist outlet where all SodaStream products are available.
