Yesterday courageous workers called on ordinary ppl to rise up against @google @amazon contract w/ Israeli apartheid gov

Today we launch #NoTechForApartheid

Join us—demand @sundarpichai @ajassy be on the right side of history, not apartheid & violence ➡️
By doing business with Israeli apartheid, @Amazon @google will make it easier for the Israeli gov to surveil Palestinians & force them off their land

Technology should be used to bring people together, not enable apartheid, ethnic cleansing & colonialism

Following in footsteps of those who fought to divest from apartheid South Africa, it’s our responsibility to rise up for Palestinian freedom

Execs @sundarpichai @ajassy @aselipsky @ThomasOrTK can stop enabling the Israeli military's violence

Tell 'em:
ICYMI: @NBCNews piece by 2 of the nearly 900 @Amazon + @Google workers demanding both companies stop providing tech to power Israeli apartheid

Shout-out to tech workers showing up in solidarity with Palestinian liberation:…

Palestinians rose up for liberty & justice this past May & June - now they're facing insurmountable legal fees after being incarcerated by the Israeli gov

Support the Dignity + Hope Fund & spread this urgent call for solidarity far and wide:

“What we've seen in the last few days is repression and brutality against the bodies of young Palestinian detainees…” The words of Palestinian lawyer Soheir Asaaad describing the aftermath of May protests against Israel’s occupation #FreeThemAll
Israel acted swiftly and violently to quell these mass mobilizations. The widespread participation of Palestinians citizens of Israel triggered Israel’s brutal response. 2000+ Palestinians who participated in May protests were arrested. 200 were indicted—85 of them under 18

BREAKING —Nearly 500 @Amazon & @Google workers just joined forces to demand *both* companies cut their contract to provide cloud services to Israel's apartheid gov & military

Read their joint letter in the @guardian here:…

Here’s why this is HISTORIC ⬇️
This past summer — while the Israeli military leveled residential buildings and clinics in Gaza, killing 248 Palestinians (including over 60 children) that week alone — @Amazon & @Google announced their new cloud contract with the Israeli government: #ProjectNimbus
Among other things, Project Nimbus will power Israeli apartheid. Workers don't want to build tech that will power violence and human rights abuses against Palestinians

Their #1 ask? For @Amazon + @Google to stop doing business with Israeli apartheid

Shakoure remains in ICE detention bc DHS is withholding vital docs that could prove his citizenship & set him free

ICE's motivations are rooted in anti-Black Islamophobia & not much else

Join us to demand @NYGovCuomo pardon Shakoure ➡️

#FreeShakoure 1/4
Shakoure's case illustrates the effects of anti-Blackness, Islamophobia & xenophobia in our carceral system. Shakoure already served 24.5 years in prison for the felony that triggered his arrest

But a pardon from Cuomo could end court proceedings & set him free #FreeShakoure 2/4
Shakoure—a Black Muslim youth mentor from Queens—shouldn't be going through this. Especially not from a jail cell while #COVID19 ravages jails across the US

This public health crisis continues to violate imprisoned ppl's human rights #FreeShakoure 3/4…

BREAKING: It’s now official — Trump is expanding the Muslim Ban to cover 6 new countries, with a focus on targeting families. Here’s what we all need to know — please RT if you can. THREAD. #StandWithMuslims #NoMuslimBanEver #RepealTheBan Image
@NILC @ZahraBilloo @lsarsour @CAIRNational @CAIRSFBA @aaaj_alc @AvidehNILC This expansion blocks immigration visa's from Eritrea, Nigeria, Burma, Kyrgyzstan and diversity visas from Sudan and Tanzania.

This would hurt families, blocking them from joining their children, spouses, or parents in the US
@NILC @ZahraBilloo @lsarsour @CAIRNational @CAIRSFBA @aaaj_alc @AvidehNILC This moment demands we take to the streets. Remember the airport events nationwide when the Muslim Ban was first announced? We need that energy now.

Please RSVP to a #StandWithMuslims event, or create an event yourself, here:

...then come back here.

Welcome to today’s Twitter chat! We’ll break down how @AWScloud & @PalantirTech power ICE’s deportation-detention machine w/ our partners: @ConMijente @CosechaMovement @StandUpNash @LaColectiVA703 @MaketheRoadNY @DenshoProject @popdemoc @UndocuBlack & @CAAAV!

In light of news that ICE used facial recog software to mine state driver databases & track down immigrants—it's extra crucial to break down the relationship between ICE, @PalantirTech & @awscloud (which houses Rekognition, @Amazon's facial recog software) #AmazonVSImmigrants
More on ICE's mining of state driver databases using facial recognition software here 👇 #AmazonVSImmigrants #NoTechForICE…
