Scarlett Johannsson & Oxfam - The World Church Viewpoint

Scarlett Johansson has stepped down as an Ambassador for Oxfam because of her new relationship with SodaStream, a company which operates in the illegal settlement Ma'ale Adumim, in the Occupied West Bank.

The Methodist Church position also notes that the expansion of settlements in the West Bank is recognised to be illegitimate under international law by the United States, EU and the UK government and as part of its call for progress towards peace and justice in the region has encouraged its members to avoid goods sourced from settlements.

Please continue to pray for peace and those who work for peace in the region and please remember our partner the Middle East Council of Churches.
