"Think of them and be scared"

Check out this video, shared with us by US Campaign member group Christian Peacemaker Teams, which features Palestinian schoolchildren from the West Bank village of At-Tuwani speaking about their encounters with Israeli settlers: Companies such as Caterpillar, Motorola, and Ahava support Israeli settlements: Caterpillar bulldozers are used in the construction of settlements and the Apartheid Wall; Motorola provides surveillance technology and cell phone service to settlements; and Ahava is produced in an Israeli settlement on confiscated Palestinian land. Find out how you can hold these companies accountable for their violations of international law through boycotts and divestment (BDS). And check out this cool new online boycott platform: http://boy.co.tt/
