SodaStream Alternatives

Since AFSC joined the national SodaStream Boycott Coalition, one of the questions we are most frequently asked regards SodaStream alternative or replacement products.  Of course the simplest alternative to buying a SodaStream machine is to drink plain water or other non-carbonated beverages.  However, if you’re convinced that buying your own machine makes sense you don’t have to buy a SodaStream.

BDS Handout

The Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement has received a great deal of attention recently, but what is it really about? What do those who support BDS hope to accomplish and who leads the BDS movement? What are some examples of BDS campaigns? This resources answers these and other questions about the growing and dynamic BDS movement.   

 

5 Broken Cameras Discussion Guide and Resources

This resource guide is intended to help facilitate discussion about the film “5 Broken Cameras” by social action groups, classes, and other interested parties.  We hope that discussion of this important film becomes a vehicle for developing a greater understanding of the issues involved in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and nonviolent resistance in Palestine.
