Break Britain’s links with apartheid Israel:

Barclays
– 4.25% shares in BAE Systems, which supplies F16 jet components to Israel and which has been chosen to
build the Turkish army’s next generation of fighter jets; BAE recently won a $40bn arms deal with Saudi Arabia. Other Barclays investments include $147.2m in Boeing, which produces Apache helicopter gunships; $65m in Lockheed Martin which produces F16s and Apaches; and $34.6m in Raytheon, which has arms factories in Britain.

HSBC
– HSBC holds £3.64m of shares in Israeli arms company Elbit. In 2009 it made over £657.3m in profits from Textron, a US company that made cluster bombs used in the Saudi war on
Yemen and in Israel’s 2006 war on Lebanon. In 2015 Israelis held $10bn offshore in HSBC accounts, including multi-millionaires involved in weapons trafficking.

M&S
– £233m a year in trade with Israel according to its last statistics. A key member of the British-Israeli Chamber of Commerce, M&S bosses have won awards from successive Israeli governments, and its founders were involved in drafting the Balfour Declaration.

Tesco
– Continues to stock “Israeli” avocados, dates and other fruits, produced on stolen Palestinian land.
