Bank branches forced to close as protesters hold die-in

PALESTINE solidarity activists highlighted how the HSBC bank profits from Israel’s “armed violence and repression” by protesting at 20 branches at the weekend, forcing some to close their doors.
Branches in London and Brighton were shut for several hours on Saturday, with activists in Brighton holding a die-in occupation, while the Oxford Street branch was picketed.
Other protests were staged in Manchester, Birmingham, Liverpool, Durham, Oxford, the London borough of Tower Hamlets and elsewhere, as part of a week-long nationwide Stop Arming Israel campaign.
Research carried out by the War on Want charity has revealed that HSBC owns shares in military and technology companies, including BAE Systems and Boeing, that sell weapons and equipment to Israel.
The actions, by activists of the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement, were timed to mark the third anniversary of Israel’s military onslaught on the Gaza Strip in 2014, which killed over 2,300 Palestinians, including 550 kids.
