Help us tell Fidelity Investments from DC to Palestine: No Airbnb in #StolenHomes. Join us in a short march from Farragut Square Park to the Fidelity Investments Office where we will deliver a petition calling for Fidelity to put pressure on Airbnb to stop profiting from #StolenHomes!
We will meet at Farragut Square Park (17th St NW and K St NW) at 11:45am, and march to the Fidelity Investments Office (1900 K Street NW) at 12:00pm to deliver our petition.
As one of Airbnb’s main investors, Fidelity has an opportunity to use its unique position of influence to ensure that the company abides by its human rights obligations under international law.
By allowing users to list and rent properties in illegal Israeli settlements and by taking a 9-15% fee from hosts and guests, Airbnb is not only profiting off of Israel’s continued occupation of Palestinian land, but also helping facilitate settlement activity.
Affordable housing and anti-gentrification activists across the country are also protesting Airbnb and its policies, which often drive property values up in working class neighborhoods, pushing families out of their homes. The Stolen Homes coalition is uniting with these organizers because Palestinians and our supporters understand the issues as bigger than just our cause.
