London guerilla projection demands all ten UK factories and offices of Israel's largest arms manufacturer Elbit be shut down.
Elbit Systems is Israel's largest arms manufacturer. It provides around 85% of Israel's killer drones. Elbit advertises their drones as combat proven, having been field tested on Palestinian children in Gaza. They were extensively used in Israel's invasion of Gaza in 2014, where over 2,200 Palestinians, including 500 children, were killed in only 50 days. One callous example was the targeted killing, from missiles fired by an Elbit drone, of four young children from the Bakr family aged between 10 and 11 years old who were playing football on the beach.
The projection showed one of these 4 children murdered on the beach in Gaza by a targeted drone strike using an Elbit Hermes 450 drone. The engines of the Hermes 4 50 drone are manufactured in the UK at Elbits UAV Engines factory in Shenstone. This factory was successfully shut down last week by heroic activists from Palestine Action with damage of over £160,000.
Abbas Ali, chair of Inminds Human Rights Group, said "With this projection we salute Palestine Action and join their call to Shut Elbit Down. Apart from killer drones, Elbit also manufactured illegal cluster munitions which are internationally banned. How can such a criminal enterprise be allowed to operate in the UK? Unbelievably there are ten Elbit factories and offices in the UK. They must all be shut down."
