It was December 7th when campaigners were protesting in Govan for a free Palestine outside its BAE site with many blockading the site from supplying arms to Israel.

Just over a month later nothing much has changed whether that be the war between Israel and Gaza or the ongoing protests carried out by Workers for a free Palestine up and down Britain. All calling for a ceasefire and to boycott Israel.

Govan hosts two arms factories, BAE Systems and Thales, both of whom have multiple military connections to the Israeli government.

There have now been reports of Pro-Palestine activists carrying out a joint graffiti protest outside a Glasgow office company which they claim is in connection to Israel. Palestine Action spray paint was used on side buildings. Palestine Action is another direct action network trying to dismantle any relationship that Britain has with Israel stating that the “campaign to end Israel’s weapons trade remains undeterred”

The video footage above was shared by the group Palestine Action on X (previously known as Twitter) and it shows to a high extent a lot of vandalism and graffiti. Considering how long the war has been going on in the Middle-east it is not clear for how long the rest of the UK will stay involved, and what other ways people might react in such an emotional and angry manner.

It is understandable how chaotic this situation is but so many are willing to risk so much and get arrested in the process. Maybe this is how world leaders might listen to the public, all the innocent bystanders turning against society and interrupting the private lives of those who just want to live normally. But then again there haven’t just been marches and protests against the wars, there have been protests about strikes as well and the British government doesn’t seem to be taking any action themselves which is why campaigners are calling for a ceasefire.

Since the war started back on October 7th, 2023, officers have been injured, and thousands have attended rallies in Glasgow and Edinburgh. Political leaders have been charged at and threatened, and changes have been demanded for the world to go back to peace, and to stop providing the enemy with the equipment used to ruin innocent people’s lives.

The Canadian Bank already invested over $ 500 million in Elbit Systems – making them the largest foreign investor in Israel’s biggest weapons manufacturer.

With the protest group claiming they are campaigning for good, they shared a statement on X (which used to be called Twitter) clearing up they are in no way getting help from politicians and have in no way formed a relationship with the members and leaders who will not call for a ceasefire.

There seems to be no end to these atrocities, the protests, and the communication barrier that is stopping everyone from getting along. Maybe every country is living with a guilty conscience.
