Protest to defend arrested Elbit demonstrators

by Nick Clark
Issue No. 2466

A protest has been called in support of 19 people arrested on a Palestine solidarity demonstration last month. 

The protesters were arrested outside the UAV Engines Ltd factory, which is owned by Israeli arms company Elbit, in Shenstone, Staffordshire.

They are set to appear in Burton upon Trent magistrates’ court on 

Friday 28 August, after being charged with breaching an injunction.

The protest will take place outside, and a minibus has been organised to take supporters from Birmingham.
