A Palestinian Activists group called “Pal Action” has confined all the entrances to an arms company in Kent.
The 13 demonstrators confined the landlords’ offices at Discovery Park in Sandwich, including Elbit’s factory, Instro accuracyn. The activists claim that the company is a weapons manufacturers for Israel, and consequently, is using these against Palestinians.
The demonstrators threw red paint over the entrance to the building to ‘signify blood’ of those that have been killed. They also chained themselves to objects and cars so that it would be difficult for police to remove them.
According to reports, 4 arrests were made at the location. The activists nevertheless claim that their blockade was successful as no-one was able to go into the premises. Perhaps they have not realised that many staff are nevertheless working from home!
There was also a demonstration in Manchester as hundreds of people demanded that landlord JLL evict Elbit from their building. Doors and windows were smashed by the demonstrators.
The same group claim that they took the same action 3 years ago, when they caused problems for the Kent company. There were no arrests last time and the group say that “Elbit are terrified of these actions ending up in court & their war crimes being exposed”.
