Boycott Nokia for Iran Crackdown

Nokia recently provided the Iranian regime with a "monitoring center"that enables security forces to tap cell phones, scramble text-messages, and interrupt calls. Nokia's new surveillance system has enhanced the regime's ability to crack down on dissent during recent protests. The monitoring technology is being deployed on a massive scale, with hundreds arrested thanks to Nokia's technology.
Nokia has a responsibility to ensure its technology is used in an ethical manner. Take a minute to pressure Nokia to stop immediately its contract with the Iranian regime, disable its monitoring center, and explain how Iranians can circumvent the monitoring system. Tell the company you will boycott its products and urge your mobile carriers to stop selling Nokia until it stops aiding the crackdown.
You can edit the letter below, which will then be sent to Nokia. (Questions? Email campaign -at- aicongress.org.)
Go to this page and fill out the form to e-mail a letter to:

  • Olli-Pekka Kallasvuo, Nokia President and CEO
  • Ben Roome, Head of Media Relations, Nokia Siemens Network
  • Robert Weisberg, Global Ethics Officer, Nokia Siemens Network

I am boycotting Nokia for helping the Iranian regime
I write to protest Nokia for helping the Iranian regime violate the privacy of citizens and jail hundreds of peaceful protestors. Nokia recently provided the Iranian regime with an advanced digital "monitoring center" that is enabling authorities to intercept private communications and arrest hundreds.
I call on Nokia to stop immediately its contract with the Iranian regime, disable its monitoring center, and explain how Iranians can circumvent the monitoring system. Until then, I will boycott Nokia products and will contact my mobile carrier to demand they no longer sell Nokia products. I refuse to help fund the Iranian regime’s crackdown.
