Teach In and Art Party: Surveillance, policing, prison and corporate complicity: let’s take action!

Wednesday, January 22 / 6-8 pm / $5-$15 Sliding Scale / Gallery

Come and learn from art activists about how to make creative and effective art installations and action props that can be used as we confront corporations who profit from suppression. Hewlett Packard is developing and supporting a biometric ID system installed in Israeli checkpoints in the Occupied West Bank which categorizes citizens by their ethnic background. In the United States, HP is profiting from work with the US prison system and the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) through a contract with the US Department of Homeland Security ICE Law Enforcement Support Center (LESC) to speed up the internal process of deciding a person’s documentation status.

Hewlett Packard, a company headquartered right here in our Bay Area backyard, is profiting from a biometric ID system installed in Israeli checkpoints in the Occupied West Bank. Like the Polaroid ID passbooks used in apartheid South Africa, this HP biometric ID system is designed to segregate and control the Palestinian population. In the U.S., HP also profits from use of its biometric ID system by federal prisons and the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency.
