For over 10 years, human rights experts, charities, and campaigning groups including PSC and War on Want have pushed JCB to own up to its contributions to the destruction and abuse of Palestinians’ human rights, and to immediately end sales to its sole Israeli distributor. On 12th November 2021 it was confirmed in an official ruling from the UK National Contact Point, a government watchdog, that JCB’s business practices do violate human rights in that their machinery has been used in illegal activities. This is both the demolition of Palestinian homes and properties and the construction of settlements in the occupied West Bank, each of which are war crimes according to international law.
