BDS Week of Action Begins November 25!

Action Alert! Global BDS Week begins November 25th.

The International Boycott HP Network and the Palestinian BDS National Committee are calling for an international week of action against HP over its role in Israel’s occupation of Palestinian land. The week of action will take place November 25-December 3, which includes the UN Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People on November 29.

Find out more on the BDS Movement website, and sign the pledge.

Some suggestions from BDS Movement include:

  1. Launch a campaign to get HP de-shelved from a local store.

  2. If the store refuses, hold signs and flyer outside to escalate pressure and educate shoppers about HP and Palestine. Or flyer on a busy street during shopping season. Gather local signatures for the soon-to-be-released Boycott HP petition.

  3. Organize a mock checkpoint or boycott HP flash mob!

  4. Go holiday carolling — with boycott HP lyrics.

  5. Hold an informational teach-in about what makes HP an important target.

  6. Ask a local community institution or church to pledge to be HP-free.

  7. Get creative putting Boycott HP stickers in smart places.

  8. Host a social media house party; culture-jam HP with your friends on Twitter. Or sign up here to join a social media team to tweet/post throughout the week!

  9. Organize an action outside of one of HP’s offices or tech industry gatherings.

  10. Start building a municipal, campus, and faith-based campaign targeting HP.
