Activists blocked the entrance to Boeing’s office in Tukwila to protest what they call the company’s support for Israel in its war on Gaza.

A spokesperson for the group Seattle Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP) said some 50 Jewish and Palestinian activists were taking part in a non-violent protest. A handful blocked the entrance to the offices at 9725 East Marginal Way S.

Another 40 were conducting a “die-in” at a nearby intersection by lying down in a crosswalk.

JVP accuses Boeing’s defense arm of being a major supplier of weapons to the Israeli Defense Force which it says have been used in the war on Gaza.

A Boeing spokesperson said it was working with Tukwila Police to make sure everyone remained safe.
