HP Enables Apartheid at the Hudson Valley Mall


HP companies provide the electronic biometric ID cards used at Israel’s discriminatory checkpoints inside the segregated West Bank to restrict the movements of Palestinians based on their religion and ethnicity. HP companies also provide technology for illegal settlements occupying Palestinian land, for the Israeli Ministry of Defense, and for the Israeli Navy to enforce the devastating blockade of the Gaza Strip.

South African Nobel laureate Archbishop Desmond Tutu wrote, "I have been to the Occupied Palestinian Territory, and I have witnessed the racially segregated roads and housing that reminded me so much of the conditions we experienced in South Africa under the racist system of Apartheid.”
