Supporting Palestinian, Immigrant and Prisoner Human Rights – FUMC is HP-Free!

Supporting Palestinian, Immigrant and Prisoner Human Rights – FUMC is HP-Free!

Hewlett Packard’s (HP) family of companies focuses on technologies that monitor and control populations, selling such hardware and software to prison administrations, border and immigration enforcement agencies, and military forces.

These products are designed to limit human and civil rights, and as such, they threaten all of us.

As a community of faith, we recognize that mass incarceration, restrictions on movement, and illegal settlements and occupation are unjust, unsustainable, and irresponsible practices. 

 Until HP replaces such business practices with ones more conducive to positive human development, ends its complicity in the illegal Israeli occupation and ceases to profit from the violation of Palestinian human rights, we pledge to not buy Hewlett Packard products, including printers, computers, and ink.
