Authors: Thom Clancy

Co-Sponsors: N/A


Whereas, DSA declared its full support of the Palestinian-led Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (hereafter referred to as BDS) movement against the Israeli government at our National Convention in August 2017; and,

Whereas, HP, Inc. and Hewlett Packard Enterprise (hereafter referred to as HP) supplies the Israeli military with technology, equipment and services that aid in the systematic surveillance, control, and oppression of the Palestinian people; and,

Whereas, the campaign to boycott HP is currently a primary global campaign of the BDS movement; and,

Whereas, the Philadelphia Coalition for Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions against Israel (Philly BDS) is calling upon local organizations and institutions to pledge support for the HP boycott publically;

Therefore be it resolved, that Philadelphia DSA will shall support the boycott of HP as long as it remains complicit in human rights abuses.

Be it further resolved, that Philadelphia DSA will refrain from using organizational funds to purchase HP products, refuse any donations from HP, and refrain from hosting or sponsoring any events with HP.
