The Israel/Palestine Task Force of the California-Nevada Annual Conference of The United Methodist Church endorsed the Boycott of Puma, at its Nov. 7, 2018 meeting.
Puma sponsors sports teams based in the illegal Israeli Settlements on Palestinian land in the West Bank, explains task force member Gloria Fearn.
Resolutions of the United Methodist General Conference in opposition to these settlements have been reaffirmed at every General Conference since 2004, Fearn notes. “The 2012 GC Resolution #6111, ‘Opposition to Israeli Settlements in Palestinian Land,’ asked United Methodists to boycott settlement products and companies operating in the settlements.
“Our Christian brothers and sisters in Palestine have asked us to support their cry for justice by engaging in boycotts as a non-violent means of protest.”
