On October 25, Israel’s Channel 2 news program reported that Caterpillar is delaying the delivery of tens of D9 bulldozers—valued at $50 million—to the Israeli military.
This news comes in the midst of a civil trial in Israel brought by Cindy and Craig Corrie, of US Campaign member group the Rachel Corrie Foundation for Peace and Justice, whose daughter Rachel was killed by the Israeli military with a Caterpillar D9 bulldozer as she nonviolently tried to prevent the demolition of a Palestinian home in the occupied Gaza Strip in March 2003.
Sign our petition to the Obama Administration calling on it not to allow the delivery of
D9 bulldozers to the Israeli military, and to investigate Israel’s violations of U.S. laws with Caterpillar equipment.
