Demonstrators gathered for a second time at a Boeing facility near the US city of St. Louis to protest the company's manufacturing and sales of warplanes and bombs for Israel.
The protests on Tuesday afternoon, organised by the Palestinian Solidarity Committee, drew around 150 Palestinians and allies from the St. Louis area for around two hours for a march from a park to Boeing 598's main gate in an attempt to disrupt operations at the company's vast facility in the St. Louis suburb of St. Charles in Missouri.
"We were outside Boeing today to demand that Boeing stop manufacturing bombs and warplanes used by the Israeli military," Su Mac, a Palestinian artist from St. Louis who took part in Tuesday's march and demonstration, told The New Arab.
"We wanted to go to the Boeing facility to demand a ceasefire and remind them that there's blood on their hands," she said. "These are bombs that are made in our backyards and they're getting away with it."
