Bulldozers vs Water

The Palestinian Agricultural Relief Committee reports that Israeli bulldozers destroyed a water well in the West Bank city of Bethlehem. Yet another way in which Caterpillar is supporting the Israeli occupation and endangering Palestinian lives.

And this is not an isolated incident, mind you. Check out the report of the Water and Sanitation Hygiene Monitoring Project of the Palestinian Hydrology Group. The damage to the Palestinian water infrastructure is pervasive--but where is the Caterpillar corporation? With its head buried in the sand as always.
