Militarised violence against Palestinians is a central feature of Israel’s regime of settler-colonialism, occupation and apartheid.
Israel’s current far-right government has continued its attacks on Palestinians. In the first 3 months of 2023 alone almost 90 Palestinians were killed by Israeli armed forces.
The violence we are witnessing today, and the historical violence that has left generations of Palestinians dispossessed and traumatised, is made possible because of the complicity of corporations and financial institutions, including Barclays Bank.
Our research has uncovered that Barclays invests over £1billion in companies supplying weapons to Israel. This includes Elbit Systems, which produces military technology, surveillance systems, and military drones – used to brutalise Palestinians in Israel’s regular attacks, including its repeated bombardments of the Gaza Strip.
The Palestinian people are standing strong in the face of this horrific violence, but they need our solidarity. Palestinians have called on people of conscience around the world to take action to end the complicity of financial institutions who support the violence perpetrated against them.
Join us to protest at Barclays Annual General Meeting in London. Together, we’ll demand that Barclays stops supporting Israel’s militarised attacks on Palestinians, and #StopBankingOnApartheid.
