Boycott Everything Caterpillar!
Cindy Corrie, whose daughter Rachel was killed by a Caterpillar bulldozer while she was protecting a Palestinian pharmacist and his family's home from demolition was in London for the opening of a play about her daughter. Mrs Corrie said in the Belfast Telegraph: "Stores should not be selling Caterpillar clothing and people should not be buying it because of what is happening in Israel.
"Our daughter was killed by a Caterpillar bulldozer and in the last four years, a tenth of the population of the West Bank have lost their homes as a result of Cat bulldozers being used by the military."
For its part a socially conscious Caterpillar spokesman offers the following: "We have neither the legal right nor the means to police individual use of that equipment."
