Add comment on:Protest Inside and Outside Hewlett-Packard Shareholders' Meeting
"Stop HP", a coalition that includes members of the American Friends Service Committee and Jewish Voice for Peace, amongst others, introduced a proposal at the Hewlett Packard Shareholders' meeting in Santa Clara, California yesterday. That proposal, calling for an in-depth look at HP's dealings with the Israeli military, was defeated by a majority. However, speakers in favor of the proposal pushed the issue, forcing HP CEO Meg Whitman to acknowledge it; Whitman said that the company "will look into this." A member of Sabeel, a group working for justice and reconciliation in Palestine-Israel, demanded a meeting be held to discuss the coalition's concerns and the head of HP's current human rights commission agreed to a sit-down.
