HP Boycott Week of Action– Atlanta Event — This Tuesday NOV 29!!

Dear Friends and Allies,

On Tuesday November 29, 2016, which is the United Nation’s International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People, we are staging an action for Palestinian rights at the Edgewood Retail District, 1250 Caroline street (off Moreland Ave), in Atlanta.

We will be acting in concert with more than 100 cities around the world in this Global Week of Action (Nov 25 to Dec 3) to bring international pressure on Hewlett-Packard (HP) companies to stop cooperating with Israel in their supression of the human rights of Palestinians in the occupied territories. We will be picketing, leafleting, gathering petition signatures, and asking customers to request that store managers de-shelve HP products from their stores.

When:  6pm to 8pm, Tuesday November 29, 2016

Where:  Edgewood Retail District, 1250 Caroline St, Atlanta, GA, in front of the Best Buy store and the Office Depot Store

What:  picketing, leafleting, petition signature gathering, customer education

Why:  to promote Palestinian human rights

6.  Important: on Dec 29-Dec 1 please tweet using this: #HPEDiscover to flood HP’s official convention hashtag with HP boycott tweets!

7.  Ask your church/synagogue/mosque/ temple/place of worship/place of work to divest from HP, stop buying HP computers and printers, and/or at least stop buying HP printer toner.

(The Presbyterian Church (USA), United Church of Christ, Quaker Friends Fiduciary Corporation, Mennonite Central Committee, and Unitarian Universalist Association have already divested from HP companies due to their involvement in the occupation.)
