UK: Activists Target Carmel Agrexco
At 1pm on 18 August, approximately 20 activists from London, Brighton, Reading and the nearby Climate Camp entered the Carmel Agrexco site in Hayes Middlesex where some activists have D-locked the gates shut. They are being entertained by Samba. Four police arrived on the scene almost immediately.
This afternoon a group of protesters from anarchist group State Of
Emergency have blockaded the main UK warehouse of Israeli company
Carmel Agrexco in Hayes, Middlesex. Their action coincides with the
nearby Camp for Climate Action and is part of the growing movement to boycott Israeli apartheid, which aims to end Israel's breach of
International law and abuse of human rights in the occupied
territories of Palestine.
The action has been taken to coincide with the Camp for Climate Action because all of Carmel Agrexco's produce is air-freighted into Heathrow and also to highlight the consequences of the resource wars which are inevitable as the climate changes.
