HSBC Walthamstow protest, 26 April '18

HSBC Stop Arming Israel!

The pictures are from our protest yesterday, 26 April ’18, outside Walthamstow branch of the HSBC Bank.

WFPSC is working on raising awareness in our local area and mobilising support to put pressure on HSBC to abandon its involvement in financing military industry and to stop arming Israel, which uses its military might to maintain five decades long illegal and violent occupation of Palestine.

Protests against the HSBC are UK-wide with this bank is targeted for holding shares and providing loans to military and technology companies arming Israel. For example, the HSBC Bank holds £3.64m worth of shares of Israeli arms producer Elbit Systems, which markets it’s his deadly wares as ‘field-tested’ on Palestinians.
We leafleted and sang outside the HSBC asking HSBC customers to demand from the HSBC to stop its complicity and support for the Israeli war machine.

Our Palestine stall outside Matalan in E11, 14 April '18

See the photos from our successful stall today outside Matalan in the Leytonstone High Street.

The weather was great, with lots of people in the street and quite a few of them chose to examine our stall and talk about Palestine and our activities.

The traffic on the High street was heavy and we had drivers honking in support and even stopping to give us a donation.

We have numerous offers of support and solidarity and expressions of interest in volunteering with us.

We need to join forces as people within the Palestine Solidarity movement. Please consider joining as a member

Decades long illegal occupation of Palestine by Israel, is becoming more brutal by the day.

Unarmed people of Gaza have been mowed down in their hundreds by Israel, one of the most heavily armed countries in the world and residents of the West Bank are executed daily in their towns and villages.

Land grab for the illegal Israeli settlements is gaining pace and Trump continues with the colonialist behaviour of the only world empire, by presenting Israel with the gift of Jerusalem, illegally occupied since 1967.

While all this is happening, there is little reporting and reactions by the, otherwise trigger happy, UK Government are muted if not non-existent.

In fact, to a a great extent, the Israeli occupation is only made possible by the Western support, including in the most devastating modern weapons available.

Our next stall is on Saturday 28 April 11.30 -14.00. Please pencil the date in if you want to visit us and we will confirm the location nearer to the date.

Show that Palestinian lives matter to you.

Justice for Palestine!
