Thousands mourn slain Palestinians outside UK arms dealer

Thousands of British pro-Palestine activists amass outside a notorious arms manufacturer near Blackburn on Friday, demanding an end to Israeli arms sales.

Anger was vented in various ways including with a funeral procession, honoring the recent martyrdom of 60 children slain in Gaza.

BAE Systems is one of Britain's biggest arms dealers and is known for building weapons used to target innocent civilians in conflict zones.

This is the second week that local residents have come in good numbers to condemn BAE Systems and more action is being planned.

Weapons firms have been heavily criticized before but rarely have protests of this size and frequency attempted to confront them so directly. Locals hope by shaming these dealers of death, they can save lives in Palestine & elsewhere.
