The 9 protesters were eventually all taken down by the police on Wednesday evening after 2 days of media coverage alerting the public to fact that UAV engines make engines for drones, that they are a subsidiary of massive Israeli arms manufacturer Elbit Systems and that they are being used to kill people in Gaza. They had shut the factory for 2 days. The protesters had clear banners and made lots of statements about what they were doing and why. Elbit refused to comment. The protesters (from London Palestine Action) were charged with aggravated trespass. Their pre trial hearing is on Wednesday August 20th at 10am at Cannock Magistrates Court, Wolverhampton Road, Cannock, Staffs, WS11 1AT. Come along and support them outside the court from 9.30.
