Goodbye MOTO! Goodbye Apartheid!


Join the New York Campaign for the Boycott of Israel (NYCBI) as they launch their city-wide boycott of Motorola!

Monday, March 30
7:45-9:30 am
Motorola’s NYC Headquarters
335 Adams St., Brooklyn

(A,C,F to Jay St./Borough Hall, 2,3,4,5 to Borough Hall, M,R to Court St./Borough Hall or to Lawrence St./Metro Tech)

Why Boycott?
In the wake of Israel's recent assault on the people of Gaza and the US government's complicity in the attacks, we as people of conscience in the US must challenge Israeli policies. Hundreds of Palestinian civil society organizations have called on the world to work on campaigns of boycott, divestment, and sanctions (BDS) against Israel, and New York is taking up the call!

Why Motorola?
Motorola USA and its wholly owned subsidiary Motorola Israel develop and provide equipment to the Israeli military and settlers, including bomb fuses, military communication systems, and surveillance systems for the wall and settlements. Similar practices by Motorola during South African apartheid prompted a successful boycott against them. Let’s do it again!

Settlements, as in, they are boycotting companies and people that support the breaking of international law.
Actually reading things can be very helpful sometimes.

Why won't you boycott using Oil as well, the women of Saudy Arabia are oppressed and treated like sub-humans?

Well Michael, I think you should do something about that! You should encourage people to boycott oil for the oppressed women of Saudy Arabia. Gather all your FACTS (I know you have a little trouble with that but you could always use this site as a reference). If these facts are proven we may all sign up.
In the meantime I think the Motorola boycott is a valid way to protest at your country's Israeli war machine and it's suffocating, disgusting occupation and control of Palestine. I know you missed me Michael :P - I'm baaaack.
