Oxfam has cut ties with celebrity Scarlett Johansson over her new role as a "global ambassador" for the Israeli company SodaStream, which is based in an illegal Israeli settlement in the West Bank. As Oxfam stated:
"Johansson's role promoting the company SodaStream is incompatible with her role as an Oxfam global ambassador.
"Oxfam believes that businesses, such as SodaStream, that operate in settlements further the ongoing poverty and denial of rights of the Palestinian communities that we work to support.
"Oxfam is opposed to all trade from Israeli settlements, which are illegal under international law."
SodaStream has a new ad featuring Johansson that is set to run during the Super Bowl, and people will be talking about the ad on Twitter. So let's show them what SodaStream's really about by publicly thanking Oxfam for taking a principled stand again the oppression of Palestinians.
