Boycott HP

 HP is not on your shopping list!


 HP provides technology to support apartheid 

 HP profits from apartheid. 


This boycott covers more than computers and printers!   Calculators, cameras, phones, speakers, headphones and microphones, watches, and projectors are all produced by HP.  In fact, if it’s electronic, be sure to check the label.  Also watch out for LED lighting and replacement bulbs for many applications, including auto dashboards.

If you already own an HP printer, there are other companies that offer ink cartridges.  Check here for the list:

If you own a business, HP offers software, servers, networking, security, and all kinds of integrated applications and hardware.  If you hire a consultant to help design a customized or integrated system of any kind, ask them what companies they represent.  HP is not on your list!


“HP is involved in several contracts that directly violate international law and violate Palestinians’ human rights. HP has developed and maintained the Basel System, which is used at checkpoints deep inside occupied territory to restrict and control Palestinian freedom of movement—in their own land. In other contracts with the Israeli government, military and settlements, HP is aiding and abetting international law violations and systems of segregation.”  More information and a petition are available here:

HP was asked to sign a resolution establishing a committee for human rights issues.  They refused:

HP Profits Decline This is a trend we want to see continue until they decide to stand up for human rights.  We can be the change!
