Elbit action at Barclays in Brighton 19th December

Today Smash EDO and Brighton Palestine Action blockaded Barclays Bank for an hour
before activists were removed. The action was part of a campaign aimed at forcing
the bank to have nothing to do with shares in Elbit Systems, Exelis (EDO MBM's 
parent company), BAE, Raytheon and other arms companies. It comes a month after a
nationwide day of action saw occupations of Barclays in cities across the UK

One person was arrested, who had glued himself to the front doors of the bank.
He was dressed as Santa wearing a placard which read 'Santa says you've been a
very naughty bank this year'.

Here's the initial press report from the Argus -
