Monday 5th August 6pm, outside Elbit Systems / Ferranti Technology Factory, Cairo House, Waterhead, Oldham OL4 3JA
For 3 days from July 1st to July 3rd protesters from Manchester Palestine Action occupied the roof of the Israeli Arms Factory Elbit Ferranti. There was also a peace camp on the ground that grew with many people from Oldham joining in. This is a chance to meet them and learn all about the campaign.
All of those involved had been to Palestine and have seen up close the devastating effect of the weapons that were built, developed and profited from by Elbit Systems. Elbit, who own the factory are Israel’s largest weapons manufacturer, making the drones that have been used to kill thousands of Palestinian civilians in Gaza. They sell these weapons as “battle tested”, which means tested on Palestinians.
Come and meet the rooftop protesters and learn more about the campaign to stop the Arms Factory on our doorstep

Picture above: Sign for JNF UK funded British Park built on the ruins of Palestinian villages ethnically cleansed in 1948.
Speaker: Kholud al Ajarma
In 2018, Kholoud al Ajarma appealed to the Charity Commission that the JNF UK should not be recognised as a charitable organisation as the JNF funded British Park is built on her family’s village, Ajjur. Her family still have the title deeds to their land in Ajjur. The Charity Commission rejected her claim.
At an independent tribunal, Kholoud will be challenging the Charity Commission’s refusal to end the JNF’s charitable status that entitles the JNF to receive UK tax relief. Her appeal is supported by the Palestine Solidarity Campaign (PSC).
Come and hear the case for de-registration of the JNF UK .
Details 4th Apr 2019 7:00 – 9:00 pm Friends Meeting House, 6 Mount Street, behind Central Library, Manchester, M2 5NS
The meeting is part of a PSC national speaking tour in support of those challenging the JNF’s charitable status.
Biography Kholoud al Ajarma belongs to one of the families ethnically cleansed from Ajjur in 1948. Today, they live in Aida Refugee Camp, Bethlehem, only about 25 miles from their village. The family still have the title deeds to their land in Ajjur. Kholoud has studied in England, Holland, Norway and Morocco, but says the Right of Return is the real work of her life.
March 30th will be the 1st anniversary of the start of the Gaza Return March. March 30th is also Palestinian Land Day.
Palestinians have issued a call for international action on the day.
Join the protest on Saturday 30th March at 12 noon.
We will be demanding an end to the siege of Gaza and the right of return for Palestinians.
No new Nakba ! End the Siege of Gaza! Defend the Right of Return!
March 30th is Palestinian Land Day – when Palestinians across the world remember the unarmed protesters killed by Israel in 1976 during demonstrations about Israel’s theft of Palestinian land. This year, March 30th also marks the the 1st anniversary of the start of the Great Return March. These ongoing protests, taking place every single Friday, have seen thousands of Palestinians demonstrating for their right of return to their villages and homes from which they were forcibly removed. Many have been irreversibly injured and even killed for doing so by Israeli snipers.
So join us on Saturday March 30th at 12 noon to show support for the Palestinian people and their rights to EXIST, RESIST & RETURN!
