Stop Destroying Tribal Communities in Saudi Arabia!

McKinsey & Co., Boston Consulting Group, and Oliver Wyman

Summary:

Demand that management consulting firms McKinsey & Co., Boston Consulting Group, and Oliver Wyman stop supporting the Saudi monarchy’s displacement and destruction of the Huwaitat tribal community.

Details:

Saudi Arabia's regime has begun the process of destroying the homes of thousands of locals in order to build the pet project of its dictator, a new city called Neom.

  • The community whose homes are being destroyed are members of the Huwaitat tribe. The tribe inhabited the area long before the establishment of the Saudi Arabian nation-state.
  • Three management consulting companies -- McKinsey, Boston Consulting Group, and Oliver Wyman -- have been contracted by the Saudi monarchy to help develop the Neom project.
  • Neom is wholly owned by the Saudi monarchy’s Public Investment Fund -- the same fund that invests in Uber, Blackstone, and many Western companies.

The Destruction Has Already Begun:

  • To build this city, the Saudi dictatorship has started to forcefully evict members of the Huwaitat tribe from their homes.
  • One activist from the Huwaitat tribe -- Abdul-Rahim al-Howeiti -- has already been murdered by the monarchy for protesting these evictions, while several others have been arrested and detained.

McKinsey, BCG, and Oliver Wyman are happy to make money supporting the repressive Saudi dictatorship’s efforts. This is completely unacceptable.

These three companies are ignoring human rights in order to continue to earn bloodstained, dictator dollars.  

We demand that all three companies drop the Neom contract and cut all ties with the Saudi-owned Public Investment Fund, on account of the Saudi dictatorship’s atrocious human rights record.
