Event Type

Join us on Saturday 12th June to protest against UK Banks involvement with companies complicit with Israel’s military occupation.

Protest Saturday from 12pm June 12th Manchester Piccadilly Gardens

Protest against UK High Street banks investing in companies providing military technology and weapons to Israel, which the Israeli military has used to commit war crimes against the Palestinians and systematically violate international law. This includes investments in major weapons producers and companies like Caterpillar and JCB who provide Israel with bulldozers that are militarised to destroy Palestinian homes and villages – to make way for the ever-expanding illegal Israeli Jewish-only settlements.

Public pressure and protest led HSBC to divest from Elbit Systems in 2018, Israel’s largest arms company, but UK bank investments in Israel’s war crimes continue.

Join us Saturday 12th June in Piccadilly Gardens at 12pm to take action and call on UK banks to #StopArmingIsrael!
