52 E. 14th St, NYC – at Union Square
Join a global week of action against Hewlett Packard over the company’s role in Israel’s occupation of Palestinian land and help launch a local campaign demanding HP end its support for Israel’s prisons, where 7,000 Palestinian political prisoners are held and tortured.
In Palestine, Hewlett Packard companies provide imaging for Israel’s apartheid checkpoints and ID cards system; enable Israel’s deadly blockade of the Gaza Strip; provide services to illegal Israeli settlements; and manage people for profit in Israeli prisons where torture is systematic.
While claiming to uphold values of social responsibility, HP companies are notorious for involvement in oppressive practices worldwide, like providing technology to enable deportations, mass incarceration, and solitary confinement in the United States.
From the United Kingdom to Malaysia, from the United States to Italy, from Germany to Palestine, organizations in cities worldwide are organizing campaigns and actions to hold HP accountable.
