Rally to Boycott Elbit / Elbit Out of New Hampshire

When: Friday, December 6, 2019, 11:30 am to 1:00 pm
Where: Elbit Systems • 220 Daniel Webster Highway • Route 3 • Merrimac

Elbit Systems is Israel’s largest weapons manufacturer. They provide technology for surveillance drones that transmit the location of activists at the Great March of Return in Gaza to Israeli snipers, and provide radars for F-35 fighter jets that fly over Gaza. Elbit’s drones have been used in all major Israeli assaults on Gaza. Elbit is also cashing in on contracts with U.S. Customs and Border Protection to build surveillance towers along the U.S-Mexico border. 

From Palestine to Mexico, Elbit is responsible for death and repression. On top of that, they are buying off Congress, too. In 2018, for instance, New Hampshire Senator Jeanne Shaheen received at least $5,500 from Elbit and a whopping $300,863 in total from military contractors.

The Vigil/Protest at Elbit Systems is sponsored by NH Palestine Education Network (PEN), The Alliance for Water Justice in Palestine and Code Pink: Women for peace.
