We want Earlham to divest from Caterpillar, Motorola, and Hewlett Packard.

Inspired by the global BDS campaign and informed by Earlham’s Principles and Practices, BDS Earlham is a campaign to encourage Earlham to divest from companies materially supporting or profiting from Israeli violations of International law and the universal principles of Human Rights by constructing and sustaining illegal settlements, exploiting Palestinian resources, markets, and labour, and/or supplying equipment, knowhow, and services towards the repression of the occupied Palestinian population through the separation wall and checkpoints.

It is a campaign to get Earlham to divest from Caterpillar, Motorola, and Hewlett Packard, because they are profiting from Israeli violations of international law and principles of human rights. Caterpillar supplies the armor-plated and weaponized bulldozers that are used in home demolitions and supplies and maintains unmanned bulldozers specially designed for urban warfare that were used by the Israel military in Operation Cast Lead. Motorola is the exclusive contracted supplier of encrypted mobile phone technology for the Israeli military and provides virtual fence technology to illegal Israeli settlements. Hewlett Packard supplies computers to the Israeli military and owns EDS Israel which produces an automated biometric access control system used at major checkpoints.

Please see our launch letter, proposed draft resolution, video, and statements for more information.
