Over 200 cyclists took part in the Big Ride to Shenstone. There it joined with other protesters on Monday 8th August, including a good contingent from Sheffield PSC. The wholly owned Israeli Elbit factory there makes engines for drones. Drones helped the attack on Gaza in 2014. This attack killed about 1,500 civilians including 500 children. The oppression continues today.
While our PSC bank accounts which help educate young women and fund children’s projects have been closed the daily business of making weapons for the Israeli military goes ahead as normal. Time to end it.
We are cycling to raise awareness of the UK’s complicity in arming Israel. Groups of cyclists from London, Manchester, Bristol, Birmingham and Sheffield will converge on Shenstone. The Elbit factory there is a wholly owned Israeli arms manufacturer. It makes parts for drones. Two years ago drones helped kill 2,200 Palestinians in Gaza. Most were civilians, over five hundred were children.
Send us on our way at Sheffield Town Hall 10.30 Saturday 6th August.
Or cycle with us for a hundred yards or a hundred miles.
Or you can drive to Shenstone on Monday the 8th August to join the protest.
What better image can there be of cultural resistance to occupation than dancing under the separation wall. In spite of the occupation, destruction of civil life and countless barriers to cultural engagement, Palestine, Palestinians and their culture does not go away, or become invisible.
