Palestine Action Shut Down Elbit Systems London HQ for the Third Time in Two Weeks

Apr 29, 2022




  • Palestine Action activists have returned to 77 Kingsway, the London headquarters of Elbit Systems, once again locking onto the entrance and preventing operations
  • Activists have thrown red paint over the premises to symbolise the bloodshed which Elbit’s British operations facilitates and attached themselves to a lock-on blocking access to the site
  • Action marks the third time in 2 weeks that the factory has been rendered inoperable by Palestine Action activists

Palestine Action have returned again to the London offices of Elbit Systems, with their headquarters at 77 Kingsway being forced to close by activists taking on Israel’s largest arms firm. Today’s action has forced the premises to close, as activists prevent entry to the site usually used to oversee Elbit’s British manufacturing of Israel’s drones and munitions. 

The site has been sprayed in Palestine Action’s typical blood red paint, as Elbit’s involvement in the slaughter of Palestinian civilians is exposed by those taking action. Activists have continued to target the site as Israel’s repression of Palestinians in the occupied territories continues. Elbit products, such as surveillance technologies, small calibre munitions, and military drones – some of which are British-manufactured – have been deployed against Palestinians over the previous month, with Elbit’s continued operations in this country marking us as complicit in this Palestinian suffering. 

Palestine Action have pledged that action against Elbit Systems will continue unabated, despite increased police and court harassment and intimidation being taken against those standing against the suppliers of arms to war criminals.
