The Campaign Against the Arms Trade is calling on local people to join a “creative action” against Barclays bank in Canterbury on Saturday 29 November at midday, at 9 St George’s St, Canterbury CT1 2JX.
Barclays has been chosen to feel the pressure of local voices for justice because it holds $3m worth of shares in Israeli arms company Elbit Systems. Find out more about their investment here.
Elbit Systems is a leading drone provider, and boasts that its drones are “battle-tested” – which they were, in the massacres of Gazans by Israel.
In supporting this action, you would be showing solidarity with students in Gaza who have called on Barclays to disinvest from Elbit.
Members of East Kent CAAT are inviting PSC members and anyone else to join them on what is also International Day of Solidarity with Palestine.
Don’t forget that there will also be a meeting on Thursday 27 November, where you can learn about the UK’s arms trade with Israel and hear about the arms companies located in our area which are helping to fuel the oppression of the Palestinian people by supplying Israel with arms and aerospace components.
