Demand Airbnb Stop Listing Rentals in Israeli Settlements
Did you know that Airbnb, the online accommodation service, is listing homes in illegal Israeli settlements for people to rent?
There are 13,000 Airbnb
listings in Israel, but investigations have proven that many of the
properties are actually located in settlements built on stolen
Palestinian land in the West Bank.
the joint petition from USPCN, American Muslims for Palestine,
CODEPINK: Women for Peace, Jewish Voice for Peace, and US Campaign to
End the Israeli Occupation--demand that Airbnb Say No to Stolen Homes!
This campaign is especially timely following the recent release of a Human Rights Watch report that called on businesses to comply with their human rights responsibilities by discontinuing to operate in, finance, service, or trade with Israeli settlements.
By allowing users to list and rent these properties and taking 9-15% from hosts and guests, Airbnb is profiting off of Israel’s colonization and continued military occupation of Palestinian land, and supporting settlement activity.
Please take action, and demand that Airbnb end its complicity in Israel's colonization of Palestinian land!
