Palestine Action's relentless campaign to shut Elbit down has now cost the Israeli arms firm two lucrative government contracts and done immeasurable reputational damage, proving the power of direct action, writes Huda Ammori.
Co-founder of Palestine Action, Huda Ammori, writes about how activists used direct action to target arms company Elbit Systems for their role in arming Israel, and succeeded in driving them out of the UK.
Palestinians don’t wait for the ‘right to protest’ by Israel, some solidarity groups should follow their example and rethink their strategy in response to the anti-boycott bill announced in the Queen’s Speech, writes Huda Ammori.
In the West Midlands, weapons maker Elbit Systems UK is countering efforts led by Palestine Action to expose its purported links to Israeli state violence in the Palestinian territories through leafleting and local WhatsApp groups.
Ramadan is a month of prayer and reflection, but also solidarity. This Ramadan, here are four ways Muslims in Britain can work to dismantle Israel's apartheid regime and end the UK's complicity in Palestinian suffering, writes Huda Ammori.
The Corbyn years were filled with the hope that Britain could sanction Israel for its human rights abuses, but the general election defeat showed the risks of expecting it from political parties. We can’t make that mistake again, writes Huda Ammori.
The claim that the UK prime minister paid ‘unexpected’ visit to Elbit systems is thought to be unlikely. However, it highlights the fear that Palestine activists would have disrupted attempts to salvage its declining reputation, writes Huda Ammori.
For too long Britain’s complicity in the massacre of Palestinians has gone uninterrupted. The tactics we are told to use have not worked, radical action is the only way to stop business as usual, writes Huda Ammori.
