Why you should join the movement against “The Polaroid of Our Times”

Massachusetts Against Hewlett Packard is a coalition of groups and activists formed in 2016 that calls for all municipalities, universities, and Massachusetts institutions to end the purchasing and procurement of both HP
Enterprise and HP Incorporated products until they end their current support for Israel’s institutionalized violence against Palestinians.

In Cambridge, Massachusetts Against Hewlett Packard will submit a resolution to the city council on April 23rd, 2018 asking that the city stop purchasing and procuring products through rate contracts the state of MA
holds with HP Inc. and HPE and purchase instead through rate contracts the state holds with other companies.

Why Boycott HP in Cambridge?

Cambridge has a long history of leadership on issues of human rights: from
declaring itself a sanctuary for immigrants in 1985, to blazing the trail in the fight
against South African apartheid in the 1970s and 80s. xi xii With no legal obligations
to continue purchasing and procuring HP products, now is the time for
Cambridge to cut all ties with HP Inc. and HP Enterprise and continue the city’s
tradition of standing on the side of oppressed people around the world.

The International Movement Against HP is Working!
? More than 1.8 million people have signed a petition
calling on HP to end its role in Israeli apartheid,
including over 2,500 MA residents and over 700
Cambridge residents.
? The global campaign targeting HP has seen significant
positive progress with HP no longer operating access
control systems at Israeli checkpoints and the
apartheid wall.
