Stop Arming Israel Week of Action 1st to 7th July

Israel uses military force to maintain its oppression of Palestinians. It targets people with tear gas grenades, rubber-coated bullets and live ammunition, and carries out mass arrests, house demolitions and extrajudicial executions.
In the summer of 2014, Israel carried out its deadliest ever massacre of Palestinians in Gaza, killing more than 2,300 people including 550 children.
Israel carries out such violence with impunity through cooperation with the UK government and arms companies. Since 2008, the UK government has granted licences for exports to Israel of arms and other controlled technology worth £434m. This includes components for aircraft missiles, drones, sniper rifles and body armour.

HSBC actions around the country

We are targeting HSBC, who hold shares in, and provide loans to, military and technology companies that sell weapons and equipment to Israel. HSBC’s complicity in Israel’s militarised oppression includes Elbit shares worth £3.64m. We are calling on HSBC to immediately end all forms of support for arms companies that help Israel to oppress Palestinians and violate international law.
