Current Campaigns

SodaStream Boycott

sodastream1CJPIP is working with the Chicago Sodastream Boycott Campaign and the national boycott of this ostensibly benign product.  Why?  Because this so-called “eco-friendly” and “socially responsible” company is located in an illegal Israeli settlement on expropriated Palestinian land. Furthermore, it employs Palestinian workers who don’t enjoy the same labor rights as their Israeli counterparts, and the money it makes is used to support continued occupation and suppression of Palestinian rights.

Read our Top 10 Reasons to Boycott SodaStream and sign our petition.

Be On Our Side

CTAplatformPoster

CJPIP developed a local CTA advertising campaign – Be On Our Side – End Military Aid to Israel in October  2010.  Since then, the advertisements have appeared on CTA el stops, trains, and buses over three separate months.  We established a website www.twopeoplesonefuture.org and have a popular Facebook page, Be On Our Side – End Military Aid to Israel. (LIKE it on Facebook directly from the website).

Because of the popularity of the ads – local groups in eight other cities have adopted this as a mass transit or outside billboard campaign.  These advertisements have been seen by tens of thousands of commuters in Chicago and around the country and have been the subject of articles in the New York Times, on CNN, and on other local and national outlets.
