On Saturday 6th October 2018, Inminds human rights group will protest outside Puma's flagship store on Carnaby Street to demand Puma stop its sponsorship of apartheid Israel Football Association (IFA) which includes football clubs based in illegal settlements built on stolen Palestinian land. The protest is in solidarity with over 215 Palestinian sports clubs which on 20th September 2018 called on the world’s third largest sportswear manufacturer Puma to respect human rights and cut ties with IFA.

Inminds chair Abbas Ali said "In March this year we protested outside Adidas flagship store in London, in solidarity with 130 Palestinian sports clubs who had requested Adidas to stop supporting apartheid war crimes. After sustaining much brand damage Adidas stopped. Rather than learn from that experience, Puma has instead signed a 4 year contract to lend its brand to cover up and whitewash the very same war crimes, which the illegal settlements constitute under international law. Illegal settlements built on stolen Palestinian land are normalised and legitimised by Puma through its sponsorship. This time 215 Palestinian sports clubs have asked Puma to respect their human rights. So far Puma has just ignored them. Sports is about fair play, Puma through its apartheid sponsorship is promoting racism. We are here to tell Puma that there is a price associated with standing with apartheid. Their complicity in Israeli war crimes will cost their brand dearly. We are here to ask Londoners to help Puma make the right decision by boycotting their products until they respect Palestinian human rights. "
