Mass Against Hewlett-Packard: Campaign Launch!

May 18, 2016 @ 6:00 pm

Join us to launch a new campaign calling on Massachusetts and its municipalities to end contracts with Hewlett-Packard (HP) until it agrees to end its corporate complicity in:
• Israeli occupation of Palestine
• Deportation of immigrants
• Mass incarceration
 

Speakers will include Caroline Hunter, who led the successful boycott of Polaroid due to their complicity in South African apartheid; Jason Lydon of Black & Pink; and Tarek Abu-Jbarah of Mass Against HP.

 
Why HP?
• Provides technology for the Israeli military to continue its occupation of Palestine by restricting Palestinian movement (BASEL implementation, Israeli Navy IT infrastructure)
• Operates inmate data systems in US prisons and works with ICE to expedite deportations
• One of the world’s TOP military contractors
 
By ending their contracts with HP, Massachusetts and YOU can create an economic incentive for this corporate giant to end its complicity with institutionalized racism and human rights violations.
