Pledge to boycott HP
HPprovides and operatesmuch of the technology infrastructure used by Israel, a nation which has since 1967 grossly violated international law by building civilian settlements in the occupied West Bank.
HP is the prime contractor of the Basel system, an automated biometric access control system used in Israeli border checkpoints. The ID cards distributed as part of this system is integral to the systematic discrimination against Palestinians.
HP technology helps the Israeli navy enforce the siege on Gaza.
Over 1.8 million people have signed a petition calling on HP to end its role in assisting Israel, and have so far been unsuccessful in this aim.
