International Day of Solidarity, Boycott HP Picket
Wednesday, November 29 at 4 PM – 5:30 PM
Best Buy, 798 Granville (at Robson), Vancouver
Facebook Event
This year, join with BDS Vancouver and show our solidarity with the Palestinians by partnering with groups around the world to say Boycott HP, Technology of Israeli Apartheid!

HP was recently noted as being on the United Nations blacklist of companies violating international law by doing business in occupied Palestinian territories.

Hewlett Packard companies play a key role in Israel’s oppression of Palestinians. They provide technology, equipment and services to the Israeli military, prison system and government, including the ID card system that underpin Israel’s apartheid policies and its movement restrictions for Palestinians.

The international Boycott HP campaign has already seen 17 U.S. churches (representing 7 denominations) divest from the company and has also attracted support from student governments.
