On the 2nd April, around 200 people joined a march organised by the Bradford Friends of Palestine in Baildon, Shipley to the gate of Teledyne who make high-tech weapons for use by the Israeli military.

They are on the Campaign Against the Arms Trade (CAAT) list of suppliers to the so-called defence industry and are our most local here in West Yorkshire – now that Chieftain tanks are no longer made at Crossgates in Leeds.

Protest at Teledyne

Teledyne are situated in a quiet industrial area off the Otley Road. Over recent years they have been highlighted as taking an active role in the armaments industry.

A number of Catholics, Quakers and other Christians joined the protest in conjunction with Muslims from various groups.

People are tired of being ignored by current political party leaders.
