April 17 marks Palestinian Prisoners Day, a day commemorated since 1979 when Palestinians remember their friends and family members held in Israeli prisons. And the large numbers of incarcerated Palestinians affect almost every family – currently over 6000 prisoners in total, including 450 administrative detainees (no charge or trial) and hundreds of child prisoners.

Join us to mark Palestinian Prisoners Day and to say #BoycottHP, Technology of Israeli Apartheid, Technology of Israeli Oppression!

Hewlett Packard companies play a key role in Israel’s oppression of Palestinians. They provide technology, equipment and services to the Israeli military, prison system and government, including the ID card system that underpin Israel’s apartheid policies and its movement restrictions for Palestinians.
The international Boycott HP campaign has already seen 17 U.S. churches (representing 7 denominations) divest from the company and has also attracted support from student governments.
