Tell the National Building Museum: Don't Reward CAT's Destruction in Palestine!
Around the world, Caterpillar has become a symbol of destruction wrought by Israeli occupation forces with its equipment against the Palestinian people. For years, the Israeli military has used Caterpillar bulldozers received courtesy of U.S. taxpayer-dollars to destroy Palestinian homes, uproot olive trees, construct Jewish-only settlements and the Apartheid Wall, and kill and maim unarmed civilians.
That is why we were shocked and disturbed by the National Building Museum's decision to award CAT next month with a prize for "Innovation in Construction Technology" -- awarded annually to recognize "an invention, an innovative methodology, and/or exceptional leadership by an individual or team of individuals in construction technology."
The US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation and its coalition member groups Rachel Corrie Foundation for Peace and Justice, Jewish Voice for Peace, CodePink and the Washington Interfaith Alliance for Middle East Peace are teaming up to ask the National Building Museum not to reward CAT's complicity in human rights abuses!
