Update: Lost in Occupation: Scarlett Johansson ends relationship with Oxfam to stick with Soda Stream












"Late Wednesday West Coast time the Associated Press broke the news. A statement released by a spokesperson for her cited “a fundamental difference of opinion” about the issues raised by her recent decision to serve as “global brand ambassador” for SodaStream, a company that manufactures its home carbonation contraptions in an illegal settlement on the West Bank."

This is the report from The Associated Press.

"A statement released by Johansson’s spokesman Wednesday said the 29-year-old actress has “a fundamental difference of opinion” with Oxfam International because the humanitarian group opposes all trade from Israeli settlements, saying they are illegal and deny Palestinian rights."

“Scarlett Johansson has respectfully decided to end her ambassador role with Oxfam after eight years,” the statement said. “She and Oxfam have a fundamental difference of opinion in regards to the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement. She is very proud of her accomplishments and fundraising efforts during her tenure with Oxfam.”"

"Earlier this month, “The Avengers” and “Her” actress signed on as the first global brand ambassador of SodaStream International Ltd., and she’s set to appear in an ad for the at-home soda maker during the Super Bowl on Feb. 2."

SodaStream “treats us like slaves,” says Palestinian factory worker -

"When asked if there was discrimination between black and white Jews, M. replied, “Yes, for sure. You will not [find] white Jews wearing yarmulke [a skull cap] doing the hard work or ‘hand work.’ The supervisors who run the factory are mainly Russian and they are managed mainly by the white Jews, and we are ‘Palestinians,’ only workers.”"

"M. also talked of discriminatory hiring practices, explaining that “most Israelis are hired through the company directly,” while West Bank Palestinians require “a special security permit to be employed.” The settlement factory has an internal security officer who “takes care of applying for the permits from the Israeli authorities.”

THIS news makes my day, A Person Cannot Represent Soda Stream and do work for a human rights group like Oxfam too, they are fundamentally two acts at odds with one another.

The Video below addresses THIS.

We now have a response from Oxfam.


Oxfam accepts resignation of Scarlett Johansson

"Oxfam has accepted Scarlett Johansson’s decision to step down after eight years as a Global Ambassador and we are grateful for her many contributions."

"While Oxfam respects the independence of our ambassadors, Ms. Johansson’s role promoting the company SodaStream is incompatible with her role as an Oxfam Global Ambassador."

Oxfam goes on to state they believes that businesses like Soda Stream that operate in settlements "further the ongoing poverty and denial of rights of the Palestinian communities that we work to support."

Oxfam further states it is "opposed to all trade from Israeli settlements, which are illegal under international law."

Oxfam states that Ms. Johansson has worked with them since 2005 and that it was in 2007 when she became a Global Ambassador, "helping to highlight the impact of natural disasters and raise funds to save lives and fight poverty."

What a downturn ScarJo has taken in her life?

She has come from helping to save life to benefitting from the taking of life.

We all are aware Israel has taken the lives of 1519 children in Palestine since 2000, in her Occupation in Palestine and Soda Stream operates out of an illegal settlement in Occupied Palestine, in violation of international law.

Scarlett is beautiful, you Sherri? They should make you wear pants on your face in public.
A diaper would be more like it, considering the projectile verbal diarrhea with which the pious l'il pustule is so frequently afflicted......

I had never heard of her before now, but well done Scarlett for sticking to your principles.
You have no business dealing with Oxfam because of their stance on Israel.

In two days, Soda Stream has received way more publicity than the Super Bowl could ever have provided.
I expect more Israeli companies to take advantage of this strategy.
Imagine that...commercial featuring a hot Jewish actress with D cups being rejected due to a boycott; it's a Pot O' Gold!

I've actually heard some pretty god things about this company's ethics. I'm all for a two state solution someday, but I think this particular subject is petty and not helpful if the end game is really justice for Palestine.
