Israel's Weapon Of Choice
Moving Caterpillar's annual shareholders meeting from Chicago to Little Rock didn't stop shareholder activists from showing up to protest company bulldozers used to demolish thousands of Palestinian homes. With a reported two-fold increase in the rate of often-multiple demolitions - the Bedouin village of Al-Arakib has been bulldozed 21 times - Jewish Voice for Peace and other groups called for a review of Caterpillar's policies to conform with international human rights laws. The proposal got 21% of the votes. It's a start.
