Urge PayPal to open up to Palestinians!

Support the United Church of Canada & United Church of Christ’s efforts to use economic leverage to end PayPal’s discrimination against Palestinians.

PayPal is especially important for small businesses.  PayPal has refused, so far, to contract with Palestinian businesses and banks in the West Bank or Gaza, where small businesses are crucial to the very limited local economy.  It does, however, work with Israeli banks, allowing businesses located in the illegal Israeli settlements in the West Bank to benefit from PayPal’s services. Palestinians are unable to establish bank accounts in Israeli banks, and are therefore excluded.

The United Church of Canada’s “Unsettling Goods” campaign and the United Church of Christ’s decisions to use economic leverage (2015 and 2005) encourage members to explore and pursue ways to bring financial pressures to bear to work for peace with justice and an end the Israeli occupation.
