On April 18, Puma shareholders will gather for the companyâ€™s Annual General Meeting (AGM).
Letâ€™s make sure Pumaâ€™s sponsorship of Israeli war crimes is on the agenda!
Puma is the only international sponsor of the Israel Football Association (IFA), which includesÂ teamsÂ in illegal Israeli settlements on occupied Palestinian land.
Pumaâ€™s endorsement gives legitimacy to Israelâ€™s illegal settlements pushing Palestinian families off their land and itsÂ attacksÂ on Palestinian sports. Israeli snipers ended the careers of dozens of Palestinian athletes in Gaza, in 2018, alone.
Pumaâ€™s ownÂ assessmentÂ of its human rights track record identified â€śsponsorship activitiesâ€ť as one of its â€śweak spots.â€ť

Collective action works! Earlier this month, thanks to thousands of you, UNICEFÂ announcedÂ it does not support the EuroAsia Interconnector electricity cable plugging Europe into Israelâ€™s illegal settlements. Letâ€™s do this again!
Letâ€™s convince Puma to live up to its claim of supporting equality and social justice!
