Friday the 25th of June will see what should be the first of many
days of action against Caterpillar, or as they have affectionately
come to be known, Caterkiller. The action will be focussed in the
West Midlands area where Caterpillar has a number of plants.
Caterpillar has been targeted for supplying of D9 military
bulldozers to Israel, despite knowing that they are used to murder
civilians (including peace activist Rachael Corrie and countless
Palestinians) and to demolish thousands of civilian homes in
illegal acts of collective punishment.

The actions will start early in the day and meet up points will be
published at a later date. Individuals and groups are encouraged
to get involved; there will be limited ‘crash pad'
accommodation available in Birmingham (email for details). The
cheapest way to get to Birmingham/the West Midlands is the
Megabus (www.megabus.com), which starts at £1 per journey
(sorry for the advert peeps, but its for a good cause). We are
hoping for as many people as possible – there will be plenty of
non-arrestable activities so don't worry about getting nicked!
If possible, please bring military style uniforms and water pistols.

This day of action will be the latest in a long line of protests
targeting Caterpillar. These have included many high street
actions aimed at encouraging a boycott of their branded products
(1), an occupation of CAT's exhibit at a trade fair (2), rooftop
occupations at their headquarters (3), leafleting inside the factory
that stopped work for a day on the anniversary of Rachael
Corrie's murder (4), attempts to present Caterpillar staff with
a ‘Homewrecker of the Year' award (5) and an early
morning picnic/attempt to present the ‘Homewrecker'
award in their car park as staff arrived for work (6).

Hope to see you there!
