Barclays Bank was hit by another protest yesterday with demonstrations by the Palestine Solidarity Campaign.

Organised by the East Berkshire arm of the Palestine Solidarity Campaign led by Razwan Khan and Ibrahim Wise, the protest stretched from 10 am to 1 pm, drawing in about 30 members, including the activist collective Riders for Palestine.

The group brandished an outsized cheque, lambasting Barclays for providing finance to weapons manufacturers such as Elbit and General Dynamics.

These companies are under scrutiny for their role in the Gaza conflict.

Mr Khan clarified their stance, saying: "Barclays is profiteering from the genocide currently taking place in Gaza."

Demonstrators also handed out literature, engaged in dialogues, and even staged a protest inside the bank itself.

Similar protests are planned at HSBC Bank and at Thales in Green Park today (Sunday, February 11), a supplier for Elbit's controversial drone systems, in the coming days.

Mr Khan reckoned: "Barclays, just as it did in apartheid-era South Africa, is now supporting Israeli apartheid."
