Raytheon missile plant occupied

Protestors occupied a Raytheon plant in northern Ireland that manufactures parts for missiles being used by Israel against Lebanon.

Raytheon’s computer system was “completely disabled”, according to the protesters, and thousands of documents were thrown from windows. A banner was unfurled from inside the building, reading “Raytheon has been decommissioned”.

Nine were arrested including socialist activist Eamonn McCann, and may be tried in Diplock Court, a special court without juries.
