Skip to comments.Huge crowd in LA for Women’s March despite “pro-Palestinian” boycott(Barf Alert)

You may recall four years ago when the actor Scarlett Johansson ended her relationship with Oxfam after the charity took exception to her involvement with the Israeli company SodaStream, which at the time operated a factory on the West Bank including a commercial during the American Super Bowl.
Even though SodaStream has since closed that plant and relocated inside the Green Line to the Negev, certain pro-Palestinian groups are still angry with her. They boycotted the anti-Trump Womens March in Los Angeles (one of hundreds) marking the first anniversary of the Trump presidency.
"The Palestinian American Womens Association cited in a post on Facebook Johanssons unapologetic support of illegal settlements in the West Bank, a human rights violation recognized by the international community whose calls only led to a reaffirmation of her position, sending a clear message that Palestinian voices and human rights for Palestinians do not matter. .. Other pro-Palestinian groups that boycotted the march included: Al-Awda: The Palestine Right to Return Coalition, Jewish Voice for Peace, Code Pink, BDS-LA, Jews for Palestinian Right of Return and other organizations who have signed the petition in boycott of the January 20 march in Los Angeles."
Johansson spoke at the event anyway. As you can see, the boycott apparently did not have much effect.
I doubt 95 percent of the marchers even knew about it, and those who did know about it didnt consider it enough reason to stay away.
The anti-Zionist Linda Sarsour, one of the Womens March national coordinators, probably was not happy about this. But it seems the movement itself is much bigger than her.

On Sunday, “Working Girl” was on one of the channels in my locale if you did not feel like watching football, I guess, lol. To think that back then, I went to the movie theatres often to see the above title and many others first run or when they newly came out on home video and that I also subscribed to PREMIERE magazine and had my high school locker displaying the mini movie poster cards you could get in the early issues all seems such a different world away from these people today who are basically certifiable.
Sodastream, great product. I went and bought one after these liberal jerks boycotted Sodastream. Now I notice stores aren't stocking it much since the boycotts, f' the protesters. One can buy all the product offerings online. I use it to fizz up water, a lot healthier than buying sodas (and cheaper getting water from the tap). There are online tutorials about refilling the CO2 canisters with dry ice to further reduce costs.

I’m embarrassed for them.
