Blockade action in ITP Basque weapon factory
On 15 November and as part of the "Decentralised Day of Action - War Starts from Europe", activists from KEM-MOC Bilbao blockaded ITP (Industria de Turbopropulsores), one of the leading Basque factories which produces engines and turbines for the military industry, mainly military planes and helicopters. The activists blocked the door with chains and used red paint symbolizing the blood and destruction that the ITP products cause around the world. Among other military artefacts, ITP contributes to the Eurofighter 2000 Typhoon, Tiger HAD helicopter and Military transport Airbus. It does maintenance work for many armies all over the world, and among other models, ITP keeps operative the military helicopters Chinook and Superpuma, both of them now in use in Afghanistan.
