Petition: divest NZ Superfund from Israel armer Caterpillar

Real footage of Rachel Corrie’s 2003 “death by bulldozer” during the Israeli military’s drmolition of a Gaza house with children still inside

 

Caterpillar makes an armored bulldozer for the Israeli military to use for demolishing Palestinians homes.

In 2003 an Israeli soldier driving a Caterpillar D9 killed 23-year-old Rachel Corrie, who was acting as a “human shield” in front of a Gaza house with children still inside. An Israeli judge recently ruled that Rachel’s killing was her own fault.

Church funds and pension funds around the world are divesting from Caterpillar for ethical reasons. We think NZ Superfund should also divest.

Lois and Martin Griffiths in Christchurch have started an online petition which asks Parliament to request Superfund guardians to divest from Caterpillar.
