UAV is an Israeli company operating in the UK with one of its factories at Shenstone, near Birmingham. There are regular demonstrations there since motors for drones are manufactured here. Many protestors have been pointing this out for many years now, but this is just one of UAV's companies continuing to operate in the UK in spite of the demands on the British Government to stop arms sales to countries known to be using them against defenceless populations. Supporting Israeli owned companies in this way just adds to the revulsion felt by very many people.
A number of people are on trial following the occupation of the factory. The Morning Star reports that the trial has been delayed until 2022 because it coincides with military action currently happening in the escalating conflict where weapons such as these are in use by the Israeli Occupying Force killing and maiming civilians, including many children.
