The International Boycott HP Network and the Palestinian BDS National Committee are calling for an international week of action against Hewlett-Packard, over its role in Israel’s occupation of Palestinian land.
The week of action will take place November 25 – December 3, which includes the UN Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People on November 29.
In Palestine, Hewlett Packard (HP) 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.
