PALESTINIAN rights activists crashed an engineering awards ceremony in London to protest the event’s role at “celebrating the worst of Britain’s military-industrial-colonial complex.”
Members of the Palestine Action group snuck into the event, hosted by engineering body Make UK at the opulent East Wintergarden in Canary Wharf, London, on Thursday night.
The action came after Israel launched its deadliest raid on the West Bank in years, killing 10 Palestinians.
One stormed onto the stage and grabbed the mic, telling attendees: “This morning, 10 Palestinians were murdered by the occupation forces, the zionist forces, using Elbit’s weapons.
“The engineering industry is guilty of genocide.
“Arms companies are responsible for millions dead around the world — are you happy to profit from murder?”
