Shout down HP
January 7, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm
This Saturday, we will be meeting at 11am outside Staples which is on Eyre Street just off St Mary’s Gate near Decathlon.
We want to make sure we keep or campaign for justice in Palestine in the public eye. Following our successful boycott Hewlett Packard action in November which was also a national day of action, we are going to focus again on this campaign and give our eye catching banner Hewlett Packard Harms Palestinians another outing.
We will be visiting the store which sells Hewlett Packard products with our banner to tell them our views about the company and why they should not stock their products. We will then walk up to the town hall with our banner arriving about 12 noon.
Remember that HP while claiming to uphold values of social responsibility, is notorious for involvement in oppressive practices worldwide including being responsible grave breaches of international law in Palestine.
