UAV engines (known as UEL) is owned by the Israel drone specialists Silver Arrow, a subsidary of the Israeli defence contractor Elbit systems. One of its rotary Wankel engines is used in Elbit's Hermes 450 drone. A version of the 450 makes up a squadron of the Israeli air force and has been seen over Gaza in the current conflict, being used for surveillance and targeting for Israel's F-16 strike fighters. Elbit's own website suggests that the Lichfield factory produces engines for the Hermes.
The demonstration will be calling for an end to arms sales to Israel and an end to Israeli violent repression of the Palestinian people.
The factory is situated on Lynn Lane, Shenstone, Litchfield, WS140DT (Tel: 01543 481 819).
The demonstration will be held outside the industrial unit at midday. Meet at Shenstone Railway Station at 11.15 a.m. The factory is approximately 11 minutes walk from the station along Lynn Lane, heading out of town (take the first left after Birch Brook lane).
