TAKE URGENT ACTION FOR PALESTINE – JOIN THE PHONE BLOCKADE TODAY

Join the phone blockade tomorrow Wednesday 28/02/24 against both BNY Mellon offices in Manchester. BNY Mellon invests over $10 million in Elbit Systems, israel’s worse weapons manufacturer. Please follow the links below to see guidance on how to take part.

We have been relentlessly challenging local ties to the israeli regime and genocide of the Palestinian people. Our in person action is vital in challenging these genocide profiteers, but it is essential that we maintain consistent pressure on them even when we cannot be there in person.

BNY Mellon continues to invest over $10 million in Elbit Systems and we must continue to disrupt them to show that there can be NO BUSINESS AS USUAL.

On Wednesday, we will be running an all day phone blockade of both of their Manchester offices. We have put together clear instructions on how to take part in this, and we are asking you to fill in at least one 15 minute slot in the day to jam their phone lines and disrupt their shameful business.

Please follow the links below to see guidance on how to take part.

We’ve put together a schedule so we can maximise disruption through the day. If you’re able to please fill in any time slots you can do by typing in an alias for yourself. However we encourage you to ring whenever you are available to increase our numbers + ramp up the pressure!

Stop the Media Whitewash of Israel’s Genocide in Gaza!

Join our protest this Saturday 1pm at the BBC headquarters at Media City, Salford Quays

Stop the Media Whitewash of Israel’s Genocide in Gaza!
Led by a children’s march so bring your family!

Media racism shown to Palestinians has been more obscene than ever as the Israeli version of events took precedent no matter how despicable the claim. And so our newspapers and news networks have laid the ground for Israel’s ongoing ethnic-cleansing and genocide in Gaza.

From the preposterous 40 dead babies claim to rape claims and the Al-Ahli hospital bombing not coming from Israel, British media has been spreading Zionist propaganda to justify Israel’s endless list of war crimes.

Now, and after 21 weeks, the BBC has chosen this moment with a Panorama propaganda report to embolden Israel’s carnage even more.

So many more examples, without which Western apathy to these abominable five months of slaughter and inhumanity wouldn’t have been possible. Horror at Israel’s crimes would’ve been the only reaction to anyone told even half the truth.

BBC and all other institutions standing on Israel’s side are complicit in the murder of 28000 Palestinians, including 12000 children in Gaza so far.

The British Media had already hidden away Israel’s 75 years ethnic cleansing and occupation. After all that they still couldn’t find it within themselves to give the Palestinians a semblance of fair coverage over Israel’s genocide in Gaza that has taken place before the whole world’s eyes, beamed through the camera phones of loved ones searching for their families in the rubble

We will never forget and we will hold our Media to account – all out at the BBC HQ this Saturday 1pm

GMPF Divest From Genocide!

Lobby The Pension Management Committee

Greater Manchester Pension Fund has over £700m invested in companies identified by the UN as complicit in Israel’s apartheid regime. It also invests in companies that provide the weapons used by Israel in Gaza.

If you are a member of the pension scheme , or if you pay council tax – then it’s your money and you should have a say in how it’s invested.

Join us outside the Pension Fund Management Committee Meeting 9am Friday 8th March at the GMPF offices, Guardsman Tony Downes House, 5, Manchester Rd, Droylesden M43 6SF and demand GMPF divest from genocide!
