This week the #StolenHomes Campaign released a video featuring Palestinians sending a message to Airbnb about their practice of listing rentals in illegal Israeli settlements: “We Can’t #LiveThere, So Don’t Go There.” Watch and share the video now!
Since January, the Stolen Homes campaign, which CODEPINK is a part of, has been demanding Airbnb comply with international law and end its occupation profiteering, a call Airbnb has ignored despite being presented with a petition signed by more than 150,000 people.
With Israel’s brutal military occupation now entering its 50th year, it is time to escalate our campaign and we need your help to do this! We are calling for a Day of Action on Friday, June 3 targeting Airbnb investors to urge them to use their unique position to influence Airbnb.
- Fidelity Investors is a major Airbnb investor and groups in Austin, Boston, Chicago, DC, San Francisco, and Triangle, NC are planning actions at their local branches. Find details on the Stolen Homes website or through the Facebook event page. If you would like to organize an action in your city, contact us here.
- Take action on social media! Join our Thunderclap and a joint tweet will automatically be sent on June 3 by all who sign up to amplify our message to Airbnb.
Last month, the UN announced that it will establish a database of all companies implicated in Israel’s illegal settlement enterprise. Unless Airbnb terminates their involvement now, it will be included in the database. The first draft of the database will be soon be released so now is the best time to expose Airbnb for profiting off stolen land!
Follow @CODEPINK, @US_Campaign, @fosnalive, @jvplive, @uspcn, @AMPalestine, @SumOfUs and #StolenHomes on Twitter for more updates about the campaign.
Toward an end to occupation profiteering!
Alli, Ariel, Nancy K., and the entire CODEPINK team
