Stop The Bulldozers report
JCB is best known for its iconic yellow bulldozers. But new evidence uncovered by War on Want has exposed the direct sale of JCB military equipment to the Israeli army to abuse Palestinian human rights, and to support the illegal Israeli Occupation.
JCB’s equipment has already been documented in use on illegal projects such as the construction of the Apartheid Wall, Israeli settlements and the demolition of Palestinian homes. But by moving from supplying civilian machines to military vehicles, JCB has entered a new phase of complicity with Israeli war crimes.
This briefing explores JCB’s activities in Palestine, and details the use of JCB equipment in Israel’s human rights abuses. You can also download a one-page fact sheet on JCB. War on Want is calling for people to contact JCB to raise concerns over its activities in Palestine, and to demand that the company ends its arms sales to Israel and takes steps to ensure its equipment is not used employed by Israel to commit war crimes against the Palestinian people.
