Will the Presbyterian Church keep investing in the occupation?
The Presbyterian Church (USA) (PCUSA) will vote on a resolution to divest from Caterpillar, Hewlett-Packard and Motorola Solutions at the General Assembly to be held June 30 - July 7, 2012 in Pittsburgh. The church is considering divestment because "products made by those companies are used in nonpeaceful ways in the Israel-Palestine conflict" and dialogue and shareholder actions with the companies have not yielded results. The Presbyterian Church's Committee on Mission Responsibility Through Investment is recommending that the PCUSA divest its holdings Caterpillar, Hewlett-Packard and Motorola Solutions. Recently other socially-responsible investment funds have divested from Caterpillar, Inc: buswk.co Many American Jewish rabbis endorse divestment: www.rabbisletter.org Learn more: www.endtheoccupation.org http rachelcorriefoundation.org www.theipmn.org http www.whoprofits.org http www.bdsmovement.net @jncatron @AbirKopty @ThisisGaza @ahmedmoor See CBS 60 Minutes story with background on "Kairos Palestine" here: www.cbsnews.com
