The Coalition of Women for Peace launched a campaign on January 9, 2009 entitled “Who profits? Exposing the Israeli industry occupation” that is intended to execute “economic activism against the occupation”.[1] Activists of the Coalition have built an online updated database documenting all known financial and commercial activity of Israeli companies, cooperates and institutions in the “occupied territories.” 

Economic activism against the occupation

The motives for launching the campaign are explained in the “Who Profits?” website as follows:

“This database reflects an on-going grassroots investigation effort by activists in The Coalition of Women for Peace, a leading Israeli feminist peace organization dedicated to ending the Israeli occupation of the West Bank, Gaza and the Golan Heights and reaching a just peace in Israel/ Palestine. In exposing companies and corporations involved in the occupation, we hope to promote a change in public opinion and corporate policies, leading to an end to the occupation.”[2]

The Coalition’s goals are not limited to providing general information to the public. Their goal is to spur “economic activism” that in turn will bring about international sanctions against the Israeli companies forcing them to cease any activity related directly or indirectly to the occupation.
