STATE OF ORIGIN GAME 1:
SNAP SPEAKOUT AGAINST MAJOR SERIES SPONSOR, PUMA, AND THEIR PROFIT FROM APARTHEID
6:30pm on Wednesday 9 June
King George Square
One of the major sponsors of this years State of Origin series is Puma. They’ve signed deals with both the QLD Maroons and the NSW Blues to provide jerseys for both teams and fans.
Puma is also the main sponsor of the Israel Football Association (IFA), which includes teams in Israel’s illegal settlements on occupied Palestinian land.
Palestinian football players are barred from travel, often attacked by IDF forces, arrested, have their home turfs destroyed and even have had their feet shot at to prevent them from ever playing again.
We will be having a speakout to talk about Puma’s complicity in and profit from the illegal and violent occupation of Palestinian lands and the BDS Movement.
