Hewlett Packard: Harms Palestinians
Who: For decades, HP has profited from Israel’s apartheid system. Checkpoints. Biometric ID cards. Surveillance databases. We need to hit them where it hurts.
What: From 29 Nov–1 Dec, HP will be holding a big trade show at the Excel Centre to drum up business from the tech sector. But despite the “Discover” name, attendees won’t be given the full facts of what HP is doing to Palestinians. That’s where we come in.
Why now: Join us, on 29 November, the international day of solidarity with the Palestinian people, to make sure that attendees who step foot into the fair are under no illusions about how HP tracks and surveils Palestinians. If we can get to the people that bulk-buy HP equipment, we can have a really solid impact on their bottom line and brand.
Where: Royal Victoria Dock, 1 Western Gateway, E16 1XL
Time: from 09:30 so we can talk to the HP event attendees as they go into the Excel Centre – so do try to get there early! We’ll stay until around 14:00.
Why target HP:
HP props up Israeli apartheid: they set up the “Basel system”, hand and face scanners that track Palestinians through Israeli checkpoints.
HP fuels Israeli aggression: they runs systems for Israeli prisons, the Israeli navy and the Israeli army.
Outside of Israel, HP is the backbone of the US military-industrial complex, tracking migrants and managing prison populations.
The Boycott Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign has identified HP as one of its core targets.
