Grape Statement on Sabra
SOPHIE JONES AND IAN FEATHER // MARCH 8, 2019
The Grape supports and endorses the boycott of Sabra Hummus by Oberlin Jewish Voice for Peace and Oberlin Students for a Free Palestine. Sabra’s parent company, Strauss Group, is an authorized supplier of Israel’s Ministry of Defense and the Israel Defense Forces (IDF). They have also publicly and strongly supported the Golani Brigade, a combat unit of the IDF infamously known for its violence and violations of human rights. Because Sabra and Strauss Group are complicit in the occupation and oppression of Palestine, Oberlin cannot in good conscience sell their products. We stand in solidarity with JVP and SFP in their efforts to form an anti-Sabra coalition across Oberlin student organizations.
