PALESTINE supporters in north-west England blockaded an Israeli-owned arms factory in Oldham in Greater Manchester today.
The Elbit factory manufactures military drones used to attack communities in Palestine.
The blockade was organised by Manchester Palestine Action, which has occupied Elbit factories in Britain, staining them with red paint to symbolise the blood of Palestinians shed in Israeli attacks and repression.
Adie Mormech of Manchester Palestine Action said: “We have closed down the whole street outside the factory, so many people from the Oldham community have come.
“This company is profiting from the killing in Gaza.
“The community is saying they should not be here, and will keep coming back every week until this factory is out of the community and our country.”
Jacqui Greenfield of Oldham Peace and Justice group said: “We will continue to protest until councillors and the government get Elbit stopped.”
