Petitioning CEOs of 4 Western tech co's: Area, NetApp, Qosmos and Utimaco

Demand US and European Co's Stop Supporting Deadly #Syria Net Surveillance



Andrea Formenti, Area President & CEO, Tom Georgens, NetApp President & CEO, Thibaut Bechetoille Qosmos CEO, Steve Munford Sophos (owner of Utimaco) CEO are the heads of four Western companies helping Syria set up perhaps the world's most sophisticated online tracking and surveillance system, which would assit Syrian forces in their door-to-door hunt for activists. Their involvement will result in the detainment and possible deaths of innocent Syrian citizens.

The companies have been racing against the clock to get the system up and running, but recent public pressure has them on high alert. One company has announced a temporary hold on activities, and two others are saying they are reviewing the situation. The technologies of these companies are required to enable the surveillance system to work properly.

We are calling on all four companies to pull out permanently and ensure their technologies are not used there, ensuring President Assad's latest deadly plan will stumble before it properly gets off the ground.
