Fri Nov 1 2013 (Updated 11/07/13)Frankenstein & Witches Say "SodaStream Is Scaaaaaaary!"
Fri Nov 1 2013 (Updated 11/07/13)Queers Undermining Israeli Terrorism Push Cliff's Variety Store to Boycott SodaStream
SodaStream, manufactured in an illegal Israeli settlement in the West Bank, is a popular home seltzer maker. The company markets its product as a green, clean alternative to buying soda in plastic bottles. But Queers Undermining Israeli Terrorism (QUIT!) and others counter that stealing Palestinian land is not green or clean.
QUIT! first approached Cliff's Variety, a popular local store in the Castro, in March 2012 to ask them to honor the international boycott of SodaStream. When they refused, QUIT! began leafleting and doing regular street theater outside the store, to educate customers about the impact of settlement industries on Palestinian life and alternatives to SodaStream.
As costume shoppers flocked to Cliff's Variety in the Castro on the Saturday before Halloween, Frankenstein and a gaggle of witches were on hand to cast some spells on the store that refuses to honor the boycott of SodaStream. QUIT! plans to keep pressuring Cliff's to discontinue selling SodaStream. More holiday events are being considered.
