Monster Mash Remix – Boycott SodaStream

Lyrics by D-Pak

I was shopping for the holidays, late one night
When I saw a product that gave me a fright
The shelves were filled with SodaStream, to my surprise
So now we must expose all of SodaStream’s lies

It’s SodaStream
They’re made on stolen land
And that’s obscene
It should be contraband
It isn’t green
Their messaging’s a sham
Do the right thing
And tell Target they should be banned

(Wahoo…)Here’s why SodaStream gives us a fright (wahoo….)
They profit from violating human rights (wawwahoo….)
They’ve made their money from annexation (wahoo!)
Of Palestinian land and occupation

(Wahoo…) If you are upset by SodaStream’s misdeeds, (wahoo….)
Don’t buy their product, it’s not what you need (wawahoo….)
There are other sodamakers on sale today, (wahoo!)
So have an occupation-free holiday!

It’s SodaStream
They’re made in settlements
And that’s obscene
All they care about is dollars and cents
It makes us scream
Militarized violence
Do the right thing
Boycott SodaStream, it just makes sense!

It’s SodaStream
They’re made on stolen land
And that’s obscene
It should be contraband
It isn’t green
Their messaging’s a sham
Do the right thing
And tell Target they should be banned!

    SEE: “SodaStream is outside the mainstream”, By Jordan Ash, Daily Planet, 9/11/12

    [EXCERPTS] . . . SodaStream is an Israeli company with its main factory in the industrial park of Ma’aleh Adumim, the largest Israeli Jewish settlement in the West Bank. . .
    . . . SodaStream built its factory in the settlement in order to receive financial incentives from the Israeli government, and like all businesses in the settlements’ industrial parks, SodaStream qualifies for ongoing tax deductions.

    As with the Maquiladoras along the U.S.-Mexican border, the high unemployment rate means that many Palestinians are forced to try to earn a living through jobs in the settlements, despite the low pay and harsh working conditions.
    Palestinian workers in the settlements do not enjoy the full protection of Israeli labor laws. They must get special permits and security clearance just to be able to enter these factories. Involvement in a labor dispute constitutes a security risk and can result in the loss of not only a worker’s current job but their ability to work in settlements in the future. Thus, many Palestinian workers do not demand their legal employment rights due to fear of losing their work permit.
    At the SodaStream factory, when workers protested that they were being paid less than half of the minimum wage and were forced to work 12 hour days, they were fired. On another occasion, when workers who were fired and were still owed a month’s wages went to the factory to request their pay, SodaStream had them removed from the factory and banned from the entire industrial park.
    As with all business in the illegal settlements, SodaStream pays taxes to Israel, not to the Palestinian Authority. The municipal taxes that SodaStream pays are used exclusively to support the growth and development of the settlement through things such as roads, education, and sewage treatment. . .

    Didn’t save the link, it was in Forbes, I believe, but Soda Stream have missed their sales targets and is reporting “difficult trading conditions”.

    Good.
