Read here about Palestine Action’s Smash Bristol Elbit Action back on 15 May 2022.

As Palestinians in Gaza are facing genocide and the complete devastation of their homes and communities, the British state is prosecuting seven activists who took action to disrupt Israel’s weapons trade. May 15th annually marks the day of the Palestinian ‘Nakba’ – the ethnic cleansing of Palestine in 1948, which saw 800,000 Palestinians displaced and over 500 towns destroyed – on this day in 2022, the seven entered and occupied the Bristol HQ of ‘Elbit Systems’, Israel’s largest weapons company.

Right now, Elbit weapons are being used to destroy Gaza and slaughter its population. By hosting Elbit in this country, we are complicit in Israel’s crimes, and the seven acted on their duty to #ShutElbitDown.
They’ll be entering Court to show that Elbit is guilty, not the Palestine Action activists standing against them.
