Major US Retirement Fund Divests From Caterpillar
After a long campaign by human rights activists urging divestment from Israel, the US retirement fund TIAA-CREF has removed the Caterpillar corporation from its socially responsible investment fund, a divestment of $72 million from Caterpillar.
Caterpillar Corporation, based in Illinois, is a focus of the Boycott, Divest and Sanctions (BDS) movement due to its sale of equipment used by Israel to demolish Palestinian homes.
The International Middle East Media Center is running an URGENT online fundraising campaign.
