Manchester: Protest Israel’s Home Demolitions! Boycott Caterpillar!
July 27 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Saturday, 27 July
Demonstrate 12pm in Piccadilly Gardens This Saturday 27th July
Stop Israel’s House Demolitions in Sur Baher, East Jerusalem – the Biggest single ethnic cleansing since 1967.
Caterpillar bulldozers have been identified and are right now being used to demolish 70 Palestinian homes in occupied East Jerusalem, in order to expand Israel’s illegal settlements, which are illegal under international law.
HSBC invests around £100million worth of shares in Caterpillar. It’s time for HSBC to end their complicity. Take action: bit.ly/HSBComplicity
From a family in Sur Baher:
“When the house is demolished, we will be in the streets.”
“We heard very loud bangs coming from a building right next door to where we are now, and that was a large mechanical digger used to rip off part of the roof of that building, which was home up until this morning to two families.”
