Multiple ‘Block the Factory’ protests against Elbit Systems (6th July)

On 6th July 2015, Israeli-owned Elbit drone factories were shut down by protesters in Shenstone and Tamworth in the West Midlands, in Broadstairs Kent and in Melbourne Australia.

At Shenstone there were 19 arrests and protesters were detained for 24 hours but, at the time of writing, the police have not decided on charges. A private security company tried to hand out an injunction, naming the 9 roof top protesters from a year earlier and any persons unknown who were within 250 metres of the factory. The police eventually pushed everyone half a mile down the road.

In Broadstairs and Tamworth, despite people on the roof, there were no arrests.
