Elbit eight?

News in Brief

On 14 September, three activists from a new network, Palestine Action (PA), were arrested in Staffordshire after locking themselves to the gates of a factory belonging to Israel’s largest weapons company, Elbit.

Other PA activists occupied the factory roof for three days. There were another five arrests.

After more than a dozen anti-Elbit actions in August and September, many involving property damage, there have been few arrests and no prosecutions – all charges have been dropped so far, say PA.
