Take action: Tell Minnesota Timberwolves to boycott Maccabi Haifa!
Minnesota Break the Bonds is calling for the first ever sports boycott action of an Israeli team in the United States. See below to learn how you can help make history!
The MN Timberwolves are scheduled to play against the Israeli team, Maccabi-Haifa, this Tuesday, October 16. This game is part of Israel’s vast public relations campaign to gloss over its crimes against humanity. One of Israel’s tactics is to send musicians, artists, and sports teams, abroad as “cultural ambassadors,” to give the impression that all is “normal” in Israel. We say apartheid should not be normalized!
On Friday, October 12, we sent a letter endorsed by over 100 human rights and community organizations to each Timberwolves player, but we have not heard a response from any of them.
Help us make our voices louder!
