Presbyterians divest holdings to pressure Israel

The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) has voted to divest its holdings in three companies — Caterpillar, Hewlett-Packard and Motorola Solutions — that it says supply equipment used by Israel in the occupation of Palestinian territory.

The resolution, which passed by a vote of 310 to 303 late Friday at the 221st General Assembly in Detroit, calls for the largest Presbyterian denomination in the U.S. to dump $21 million in investments from the three companies.
