Come help us deliver petitions to Airbnb--Let them know we do NOT want them renting in illegal Israeli Settlements on the West Bank. #StolenHomes Also, we do not want them adding to the housing shortage and high prices of housing in PDX. See more and sign a petition at http://stolenhomes.org/ As people who care about human rights and international law, we ask Airbnb to immediately stop listing vacation rentals in Israeli settlements, all of which were built on stolen Palestinian land and deemed illegal under international law. Airbnb’s anti-discrimination policy states that they prohibit listings that promote racism, discrimination, or harm to individuals or groups, and require all users to comply with local laws. Yet, listing vacation rentals in illegal settlements promotes structural discrimination, theft of Palestinians' land, and direct violations of international law. Through earning fees from settlement vacation rentals, Airbnb is directly profiting from the continuing occupation and dispossession of Palestinians.
