Barclays Bank, North Street.
Saturday 28th April 1pm
Boycott Barclays picket outside Barclays in North Street, Brighton.
This will be the 4th boycott action that has been called jointly by Jordan Valley Solidarity, B&H Palestine Solidarity Campaign, Smash EDO, and Sussex & Brighton Uni students. We’ve effectivley closed the branch down every time. Lets make this one even bigger.
Why Barclays? Well, they:
– have a long history of profiting from suffering and war – most people will be aware of their involvement in apartheid South Africa in the 70’s and 80’s.
– are the only major British high street bank with significant investments in Israel, holding shares in 8 Israeli companies and a number of companies linked to Israel’s illegal settlements.
– are the largest global investor in the arms trade and holds shares in several companies supplying arms to Israel.
