Protesters arrested at JCB site


Staffordshire police have today arrested four people at JCB’s world logistics site in Tunstall after a protest over the use of bulldozers in Israel.

Protesters arrived at the site at around 6:30 this morning and proceeded to lie down in the road, strapping themselves into place using arm tubes.

A number of standing protesters also chanted and waved placards at the sight, just off Lowlands Road.

Staffordshire police were present monitoring the situation and arrested four people. It is not clear yet for what reason.

A statement released by the protesters detailed that the action was in retaliation to JCB’s equipment being used in Israel to demolish the homes of Palestinian people.

Staffordshire Police remained at the scene this afternoon.

JCB have been contacted for comment and any updates will be published here.
