PLEASE TAKE ACTION RIGHT NOW AND SEND YOUR LETTER TO THE UN OFFICE OF THE SPECIAL ADVISER ON THE PREVENTION OF GENOCIDE AND THE INTERNATIONAL CRIMINAL COURT PROSECUTOR.

The sentence came after Judge Rowlands refused to allow evidence of Israel’s war crimes to be heard at court, and would not allow the defence to make the argument that their actions ‘prevented a greater crime’ or ‘acted to save lives’… Following the sentencing, Palestine Action said: “The four activists are the longest serving prisoners for taking action with Palestine Action to disrupt the war machine. Their incarceration demonstrates Britain prioritising the interests of an arms industry which facilitates the genocide of the Palestinian people, over the freedom of its own citizens.

PLEASE TAKE ACTION RIGHT NOW AND SEND YOUR LETTER TO THE UN OFFICE OF THE SPECIAL ADVISER ON THE PREVENTION OF GENOCIDE AND THE INTERNATIONAL CRIMINAL COURT PROSECUTOR.

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?”

The firm has abandoned its office at 77 Kingsway, leaving Elbit’s London Headquarters permanently closed.

The campaign culminated in 60 arrests for which activists continue to face trial. Elbit’s exit in London comes just 5 months after it was forced to shut Elbit Ferranti in Oldham.
…In August 2020, a sister campaign against Elbit’s London landlord, Jones Lang Lasalle (JLL), was also launched. JLL’s sites have been routinely defaced, smashed and doused in the Palestine Action iconic red paint, as activists continued to demand that the landlords “Evict Elbit” and cease profiting from the genocide of the Palestinian people.
