Elbit out of Oldham!

Elbit out of Oldham!

Support our campaign to shut down arms manufacturer Elbit Systems Ltd in Oldham! We urgently call for its production to move to environmental and renewable manufacturing instead of weapons.

Why is this important?

We believe Elbit Systems, an Israeli arms manufacturer based in Oldham, should be closed down and urgently call for its production to move to environmental and renewable manufacturing instead of weapons

Elbit Systems Ltd is the sole owner of Ferranti Technologies based in Cairo House in Waterhead. Elbit is a major supplier to the Israeli defence Forces and makes a range of weapons systems developed through “extensive real world combat experience” in conflicts with Palestinians, others in the Middle East and around the world.

In Gaza over 2200 Palestinians were killed in 51 days of Israel’s bombing in 2014 including over 500 children. Palestinians in Gaza have protested against inhumane living conditions created by a decade long Israeli blockade. Israel has responded violently to unarmed demonstrators by shooting dead at least 250 and injuring 18,000.

Israel is one of the world’s largest arms exporters and India is its largest buyer. Troops in occupied Kashmir are likely to be using Israeli made arms against a besieged population, who have for years experienced human rights violations.
