Fight for justice for Palestinians

Keep up the pressure on HSBC: Stop Arming Israel

The new phase of our Stop Arming Israel campaign has achieved a leap forward - we've been calling on HSBC to end its complicitiy in Israel's violations of international law. And they're listening, thanks to people like you. The campaign launched with over 20 demonstrations across the country, and our online action had over 6,500 people emailing the CEO of HSBC.

Yet there's so much more to be done to make this campaign a success, and we won't stop until HSBC acts on our message: end your complicity in Israel's brutal oppression of Palestinians.
