It’s time for General Mills to boycott “Israel”

The U.N. has named General Mills as one of the 112 businesses violating international humanitarian and human rights law by operating in occupied Palestinian territories. General Mills profits off of apartheid and is complicit in the displacement, surveillance, and criminalization of Palestinians.

Incredibly, General Mills has endorsed the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights and stated, “Respect for human rights is fundamental to our purpose of serving the world by making food people love and to our commitment to ethical business conduct.” It’s past time they put those principles into practice.
