Four protesters have been arrested after gluing themselves together and spray-painting paint on a building in central London, Metropolitan Police said.
Palestine Action activists blocked a Holborn building where Israeli arms company Elbit Systems has an office, the campaign group said on Twitter.
Footage showed the entrance to 77 Kingsway covered in red paint as the four protesters, their arms locked in cylinder tubes, shouted: “Turn off Elbit down”.
Two men and two women were arrested on suspicion of criminal damage and assault, according to Scotland Yard, which said a member of staff at the building was assaulted.
The force’s detachment team was deployed after officers were called to reports of a demonstration at Kingsway around 8:30 a.m. Tuesday.
Protesters were also depicted emitting colored flares.
Palestine Action tweeted: “If this was Palestine, this smoke could very well be Elbit-made tear gas used on the Palestinian people.
“Palestine is being suffocated by the warriors at Elbit – and our place in the fight against #FreePalestina is to join the resistance and #ShutElbitDown”.
Elbit Systems was contacted for comment.
