Barclay's Bank - STOP PROFITING FROM CRIMES AGAINST THE PALESTINIAN PEOPLE AND DIVEST FROM ELBIT SYSTEMS

Join the Aberdeen Trades Union Council, Scottish Palestinian Solidarity Campaign and other community, political and faith groups, again on Saturday 23rd Aug, when people from Aberdeen and the north-east will once more gather outside Barclays Bank to voice their condemnation of Barclays’ complicity in Israeli war crimes.

Meet in St Nicholas Square at 12 noon for the protest at Barclays at 12.30 and add your voice to the protest - NO MORE UK COMPLICITY IN ISRAELI WAR CRIMES!

WHY BARCLAYS?
Barclays bank is a major shareholder in Elbit Systems, an Israeli arms manufacturer. Barclays holds about 6.5% of all of Elbit shares and has more than £7 billion invested in global arms companies.

The Scottish Government has called for an arms embargo on Israel given the mounting evidence of Israeli war crimes in Gaza. This MUST be accompanied by global divestment from Israeli arms companies.
