Control and monitoring

Hewlett Packard (HP) is among the top military systems providers in the world, specialising in technologies to control and monitor large populations, selling them to prison authorities, immigration police and military regimes. These products are designed to limit human rights and civil liberties.

HP's Basel systems are installed at Israeli military checkpoints in the occupied West Bank which facilitate the restriction of movement and control of the occupied population – a violation of international law.

Hewlett Packard's new biometric identification system developed for the Israeli government differentiates among the citizens of Israel, taking technology to a new level in the stratification of citizenship rights.

HP supplies the Israeli military with its computer systems and provided the technology infrastructure for the Israeli navy, which was responsible for the 2010 raid on the freedom flotilla that resulted in the death of nine peace activists. It also provides services to several Israeli West Bank settlements, all of which are illegal under international law.

Social justice groups around the world have been trying for years to discuss these issues with HP, but have failed to get their attention.

Two decades ago, the international boycott of firms that supported the apartheid South African regime played an important role in over-turning that racist regime. It's time to do it again.
