Stop Caterpillar
Friday, April 23rd 2004 12 Noon
Peoria, Illinois


On April 23rd, we will rally in Peoria, Illinois and march to CAT headquarters to demand James Owens, the current CEO, meet with a delegation of victims of violence and destruction perpetrated using CAT equipment. The delegation, backed up by activists and concerned people from around the country, will seek an end to the Caterpillar corporation's business with the Israeli army.

The Stop Cat Coalition is a collaboration of dozens of peace, social justice, human rights, and anti-occupation organizations dedicated to bringing about an end to the Caterpillar corporation's sales of large bulldozers and other equipment and spare parts to the Israeli Army.

Thousands of homes have been illegally bulldozed to the ground, many with people still inside, and countless orchards and olive trees have been uprooted using Caterpillar's equipment. This equipment is sold with full advance knowledge of how it is going to be used.

A Caterpillar D-9 bulldozer was even used to brutally murder a brave American humanitarian volunteer, Rachel Corrie.

Please join us to demand that Caterpillar immediately cease all sales to the Israeli army and publicly explain why it did so.
