Alert: 30th Mar 2018 - Protest Adidas support of Israeli war crimes - Demand Adidas ends apartheid sponsorship
28 March 2018
DATE: Friday 30th March 2018, 3-5pm
LOCATION: Adidas flagship store, 415-419 Oxford Street (opposite Selfridge's, nearest tube is Bond Street)
On Friday 30th March 2018, Inminds human rights groups will protest outside Adidas's flagship store on Oxford Street to demand Adidas stop its sponsorship of apartheid Israel Football Association (IFA) which includes football clubs based in illegal settlements built on stolen Palestinian land. The protest is in solidarity with over 130 Palestinian football clubs and sports associations which last week called on the world’s second largest sportswear manufacturer Adidas to respect human rights and cut ties with IFA.
Inminds chair Abbas Ali said "March 30th is Land Day, a commemoration of the ongoing theft of Palestinian land by zionist colonialists. That theft is made possible by companies like Adidas which lend their brand to cover up and whitewash Israel's war crimes, which the illegal settlements constitute under international law. Illegal settlements built on stolen Palestinian land are normalised and legitimised by Adidas through its sponsorship. We are here to tell Adidas that their complicity in Israeli war crimes will cost their brand dearly. And we are here to ask Londoners to help Adidas make the right decision by boycotting their products until they respect Palestinian human rights."

"Everywhere we went (in Gaza) the same question was on every body's lips - 'You are here but where are the Arabs?' One little girl said to me 'where is this Arab world that they teach us about in school? Where is this Ummah that they talk to us about on Fridays? Why did they leave us alone?'. That's what she said to me, with tears in her eyes 'why did they leave us alone?' I had to turn my face away from her when she said it, and I'm not an Arab, I had to turn away.. I couldn't face her in the face of such a question.."
