On Saturday 23 September hundreds of protesters descended on more than 25 Barclays branches across Britain to demand the bank divests from arms companies supplying Israel with weapons used in its brutal attacks on Palestinians, as part of a national day of action calling on Barclays to #StopBankingOnApartheid

Research released by PSC, CAAT and War on Want last year uncovered that Barclays holds over £1 billion in shares and provides over £3 billion in loans and underwriting to 9 companies whose weapons, components, and military technology have been used in Israel’s armed violence against Palestinians.   

Since the research was released, Barclays branches have been the site of regular protests to demand the bank ends its complicity in Israel’s colonial attacks on Palestinians, which have killed over 200 Palestinians in 2023 alone. 

Palestinians are facing down Israel’s brutal assaults, and call on us to take action against financial institutions, like Barclays, that facilitate violence against them.

We will continue to protest at Barclays branches until it ends its complicity in Israeli apartheid!
