Hundreds of protesters marched through the city Monday night to show solidarity with Palestinians in their conflict with Israel. Organized by activist groups, including Jewish Voice for Peace and Students for Justice in Palestine, the protest condemned the United States' alleged complicity in the Gaza conflict, and ended outside a Hewlett Packard conference in the Seaport District, where marchers contended that the company profited from contracts with the Israeli government. "It is not our policy to take sides in political disputes between countries or regions," said an HP spokeswoman. "Instead, we focus on making the best products we can to help improve the lives of people around the world."
