Midwest Regional Action to support BDS
We're planning something big for this year's shareholder meeting, and need your support at the protest! If you travel for one BDS event this year, consider making it the Caterpillar shareholder meeting in Chicago!

Since 1967, Caterpillar equipment has been the primary tool that Israel has used to destroy more that 18,000 civilian homes in the Occupied Palestinian Territories and more than 1,000,000 olive trees, many of them centuries old. Caterpillar equipment has been used not only for the destruction of homes and fruit groves but also for the construction of illegal Israeli settlements, the Wall which was ruled illegal by the International Court of Justice in July 2004, and roads in the West Bank which are for the use of Israeli citizens only.
