Fri. Dec. 6th 11:30 am -1:00 pm
Elbit Systems, 220 Daniel Webster Highway (Rt. 3), Merrimack, NH

Elbit Systems is Israel’s largest weapons manufacturer. They make surveillance drones that transmit the location of Palestinians to Israeli snipers at Gaza’s Great March of Return. Israel has killed over 200 peaceful people and injured more than 13,000 since March, 2018. https:// ifamericansknew.org

Elbit Systems, a US subsidiary, contracts with US Customs and Border Protection to build towers along the US-Mexico border, including many on the Tohono O’odham Native American reservation. This has pressured immigrants to seek more dangerous routes of entry, resulting in 7500 known deaths and disappearances on the border from 1998-2018. (Transnational Institute) Elbit systems is
part of the MILITARIZED BORDER-INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX.

PLEASE NOTE: there is no parking at Elbit.
