In response to the attacks on Oxfam from leading Australian Jewish organisations for parting ways with Scarlett Johannson over her conflict of interest (promoting Sodastream while being an Oxfam Ambassador) ,  two letters were published in the Australian Jewish News (14 Feb 2014).
One is from Andrew Casey who has a long association with the Australian union movement, including the ACTU. He is also a member of TULIP, Trade  Unions Linking Israel and Palestine.  It should be noted that Michael Danby, a member of the Australian Labour Party and Member for Melbourne Ports has slammed Oxfam’s  position on Settlement Products and Ms Johannson.  He is himself a former union official.  It would be  interesting to know his response to Andrew Casey’s letter
The second comes from AJDS member Larry Stillman.
