PRODUCTION at an arms factory which helps make weapons for Israel remained at a standstill today as Palestine supporters staging an occupation on the building’s roof vowed “to stay as long as we can to disrupt the factory.”
Palestine Action supporters climbed onto the roof of the APPH factory at Runcorn in Cheshire in the early hours of Thursday.
Today protesters gathered at the factory gates to support the occupiers.
Huda Ammori, a co-founder of Palestine Action, said: “APPH is one of the key suppliers to Elbit which provides drones to Israel.
“This is one of many actions targeting companies linked to Elbit Systems, such as suppliers and landlords who enable Elbit to supply weapons to kill Palestinians.”
Nationwide protests take place tomorrow in support of Palestine.
They include a rally and demonstration assembling at Leeds town hall at 2pm, and action in Manchester, where campaigners will meet in Piccadilly Gardens at noon to demonstrate outside banks which invest in companies which supply the Israeli military. In London protesters are to assemble at Downing Street at 1pm.
