Hang Up on Motorola! Demo at Verizon
by Santa Clara Activist
Monday Mar 30th, 2009 10:07 PM
Activists took a stand for human rights in front of a Verizon Store in Santa Clara, California on March 30. Verizon carries Motorola cell phones and stylish accessories but Motorola is guilty of making military guidance systems and fuses used in a variety of bombs which they then sell to the Israeli army.

Demonstrators passed out flyers calling for a boycott against Motorola.

Demands include:

--End production and sales of fuses and other weapons components to Israel.

--End sales of communication devices to Israel (The *Mountain Rose Communication System* that Motorola designed for the Israeli military enables military invasions and a regime of over 600 checkpoints that prevent Palestinians from getting to school, work and hospitals in the Occupied Palestinian Territories).

--End sales of all products that support Israel's separation barrier and settlements (including the *Wide Area Surveillance Sytem* manufactured by Motorola-Israel).

See the website, join the boycott! Also see: San Jose Peace and Justice Center http://www.sanjosepeace.org

As capitalism falters, recession is evident. The normally bustling mall in the heart of Silicon Valley is more quiet than it has been in recent past.
