The South Florida-based Falic family, owners of the airport retail stores, Duty Free Americas, has sent millions of dollars in company profits to fund the forced displacement and dispossession of Palestinian families in Jerusalem and the West Bank through illegal settlement expansion.
What has compelled us to organize the Boycott Duty Free Americas campaign is that profits from the South Florida-based corporation, Duty Free Americas — owned by the South Florida Falic family — have been used to fund Israel’s violent anti-Palestinian settler groups. These are groups, backed by the Israeli government, that attack Palestinians, expel them from their homes and their land, attack Muslim houses of worship, steal Palestinian water and destroy their crops, and engage in other forms of day-to-day violence and aggression against Palestinians. We are committed to taking action and raising visibility about the need to boycott Duty Free Americas until they stop funding the ethnic cleansing of Palestinians.
