Breaking news – rooftop action at Thales in Glasgow

Hi everyone, 
Activists from Glasgow Palestine Action have today occupied the roof of an arms 
factory owned by Thales UK,an arms company that collaborates closely with Elbit 
Systems on the development and manufacture of drones.Thales and Elbit are
working together on the Watchkeeper project that is developing a drone for the UK
government based on the Hermes 450 drone that Israel has used during its attacks
on Gaza. I've just spoken to someone at the action who said that there are 4
people on the roof and 2 people blockading the entrance. Engineers are unable
to enter the site and the factory has been closed for the day!

thanks, michael
