No Appetite for Apartheid Campaign

No Appetite for Apartheid is a national boycott campaign launched by the DSA BDS & Palestine Solidarity Working Group on Nakba Day 2022, in commemoration of the Nakba or Catastrophe of 1948 and the ongoing Nakba Palestinians experience everyday. So, we are turning up the heat on the apartheid regime by declaring we have #NoAppetiteForApartheid and taking apartheid off our plates! 

In line with the principles of the Palestinian-led Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) Movement, we are targeting Israeli food products and companies that operate on stolen Palestinian land, including: Sabra; Pillsbury; Israeli dates such as Jordan River, King Solomon, Mehadrin; and Israeli agricultural products such as Jaffa Oranges, Tivali, and more. 

Boycotts, and specifically food boycotts, have been used throughout history to apply economic pressure as leverage against entities perpetrating injustice: from the Coca-Cola boycott of the South African anti-apartheid movement, to the boycott of Nike for its violation of childrens’ rights and labor laws, to the boycott of Israeli apartheid today. 

We are asking DSA chapters to join the campaign by canvassing local stores in their community and asking them to pledge to become Apartheid Free Stores by dropping Israeli food products from their shelves.
