Campaign video June 2024

In the end of June 2024, we created a short video with information on Elbit Systems and the international campaign for shutting them down. See the video here or on our social media!


In October 2023, in the midst of Israel’s genocide of Palestinians, the Swedish Armed Forces signed a contract worth SEK 1.7 billion with the Israeli arms company Elbit Systems’ subsidiary in Sweden.

Several actors have taken a stand and chosen to stop cooperating and investing in Elbit following criticism of the company.

Here are some examples:
In 2010, the Swedish AP Funds stopped investing in Elbit because the company’s activities are not compatible with international laws such as the Hague and Geneva Conventions, which are designed to protect civilians in armed conflicts. For example, Elbit System contributes surveillance equipment to the apartheid wall on occupied land in Jerusalem.

Recently, the Swedish Länsförsäkringar, the Norwegian pension fund KLP and the Australian Future Fund have also stopped investing in Elbit Systems, on the grounds that Elbit produces cluster munitions through its subsidiary IMI.
Cluster munitions have been internationally banned since 2008 under the Convention on Cluster Munitions.

These weapons open up in the air and disperse a large number of smaller bombs. The wide dispersion of the weapon makes it difficult to control what and who will be hit, often leading to serious humanitarian consequences with many civilian deaths.

In February this year, Itochu, one of Japan’s largest trading companies, and the aerospace company Nippon Aircraft Supply, announced that they were ending all cooperation with Elbit. In Tokyo, protests were held outside Nippon Aircraft Supply’s offices, and a petition calling on the Japanese companies to end their relationship with Elbit collected more than 33 000 signatures.

Japan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs also called on the companies to comply with the ruling of the International Court of Justice in The Hague that all countries have an obligation to stop Israel’s genocide in Gaza.

As a result of pressure and information dissemination by activists, together with the ICJ ruling, more and more companies and countries are ending their cooperation with Elbit Systems.

The actions against Elbit continue worldwide and here in Sweden we will continue the fight until the agreements are canceled and Elbit is shut down!
