Show Your Support: Sign on to the Pledge to Boycott Israeli Settlement Products!

The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), acting upon policy enacted at the 220th General Assembly (2012), recently launched a boycott of all products manufactured in Israeli settlements in the West Bank. The boycott is intended to serve as a nonviolent tool to help bring about a peaceful solution to the conflict in Israel-Palestine. Show your support, either as an individual, congregation, or Presbytery, by clicking here to sign the pledge. 

In introducing the boycott to Presbyterians, Stated Clerk Grayde Parsons writes, "The General Assembly has chosen the witness of this boycott as a non-violent strategy for bringing the daily realities faced by Palestinans and Israelis alike." As we prepare for the 221 General Assembly (2014) sign your name here to show you support for the denominational call to boycott products made in the Israeli settlements. 

The boycott includes all products manufactured in Israeli settlements and is not targeted against the state of Israel. For a list of some of the products included in the boycott, visit the PC-USA Boycott webpage, here.
