Activists seize Civic Centre to protest over investments in firms linked to war in Gaza

In an eye-opening act of defiance, activists have seized the Civic Centre in Pontypool, speaking out against Gwent Councils’ pension fund choices.

The funds, meant for securing futures, are allegedly mired in investments amounting to £110 million in firms linked to the persecution of the Palestinian people—an act against United Nations guidelines.

This startling discovery reveals investments in Elbit Systems, known for its involvement in military actions deemed as potential war crimes in Gaza.

A spokesperson for Newport Palestine Solidarity Campaign group said: “Our community demands responsible investing. The time for Gwent Council leaders to rectify this has come. Let’s uphold ethical standards and demand divestment from any activities that tarnish our communal conscience.”

We have contacted Gwent Council for comment.
