Blocking Israel’s War Machine

Early on the morning of October 30th, a crowd descended on INKAS Armored, a Toronto-based defence contractor with ties to the Israeli Defence Forces. Responding to a call from Palestinian trade unions for workers around the world to shut down exports to the Israeli military, the protesters set up picket lines to block access to the facility.

The Israeli state is carrying out a massacre in Gaza with bombs, tanks and weapons manufactured in several countries in the so-called West. As the world watches the unfolding situation in horror, one way of moving beyond vigils and rallies entails finding effective ways to target this supply of arms.
