THE ARMS INDUSTRY IN BROADSTAIRS

A THANET WATCH REPORT On Tuesday 17 February protestors closed down a Broadstairs factory owned by an Israeli drone manufacturer. The protestors, mainly made up of pro-Palestine campaigners, camped on the roof of the Instro Precision factory which is part of the Israeli Elbit company. One of the protestors chained herself to the gate of the factory. Elbit’s drones were used in the conflict in Gaza last year in which over 2000 people were killed including 495 children and 253 women. http://www.thanetwatch.wordpress.com
