Palestinian rights supporters call for Soda Stream boycott


A group of protesters will gather outside the Target store in downtown Minneapolis this afternoon to voice their objection to a product called Soda Stream. The device adds carbonation to ordinary tap water. The controversy is related to the complicated situation in Israel and Israel’s settlements on the West Bank of the Jordan River. The protest is organized by two groups – Jewish Voice for Peace and the Coalition for Palestinian Rights. Jordan Ash is a spokesperson for the effort spoke over the phone with The Morning Blend’s Terry Carter who asked Jordan what about his gripe with Soda Stream. [Audio below]
