Barclays - Don't Bank On Apartheid
Saturday 25 March 12 noon - 2pm
Barclays Bank, Queens Road, TN34 1QP

Join us on Saturday - along with more than 30 other protests throughout the UK - to demand that Barclays stops investing in arms companies supplying Israel with weapons used to assault and kill Palestinians.
Barclays has more than £1 billion invested in companies supplying weapons and military technology to Israel. This includes investments in Israeli drone manufacturer Elbit which makes the militarised drones that are used to target and kill civilians in Gaza. In addition to its investments, Barclays provides £3.9 billion in loans and underwriting to these companies.

Please share our Facebook event page.
More information at the PSC website: Barclays: Don't Bank on Apartheid.

Information stalls

Our stalls are every Saturday 12.00 noon until 2 pm (weather permitting) in the town centre. Please pay us a visit. Apart from a range of leaflets, pamphlets and stickers, we have keffiyehs from Hirbawi in Hebron, a range of T-shirts and Palestinian flag umbrellas. We also sell handicrafts from the Shu'fat Refugee Camp.
