2,000 emails to Motorola

Last week we asked you to help us send 2,000 emails to Motorola's CEO and VP of Investor Relations. You responded, and now we're only 30 emails away from our goal!

After a year of the Hang Up On Motorola boycott campaign, Motorola's management still doesn't understand that they are responsible for their products systematically being used to violate Palestinian rights. While it can take a while to get through to executives, ordinary people are more receptive, and our campaign has been gaining traction in the media, with investors, and consumers. Help us get the message through to Motorola's management. Click here to send them an email.

Last year, our shareholding allies won 12% approval for their human rights resolution at the Motorola shareholders' meeting. This year, a group of US Campaign supporters will be educating shareholders about this important resolution and hope to increase support to 20% of all Moto shareholders. Click here to read the resolution that would require Motorola to respect human rights and international law, including the laws that prohibit Israeli settlements and the building of the apartheid wall on Palestinian land.

Even if you can't be with us at the shareholders' meeting in Chicago, you can still join the pressure campaign by clicking here to send an email to Motorola's CEO and VP of Investor Relations, demanding they take action to end Motorola's support for Israel's violations of international law and Palestinian human rights.

Help us smash our goal of 2,000 emails to Motorola executives by the time the shareholder meeting begins (4pm central time today). Your message will still send an important signal about corporate social responsibility, even if it gets to Motorola's management team after the shareholders' meeting, so please don't hesitate to take action!
