Leftist activist who tried to firebomb Israeli company in New Hampshire is a Cuban dictatorship supporter

A group of leftist activists supporting Hamas terrorists attacked the offices of an Israeli company in New Hampshire, spray-painting the building, smashing windows, and setting off incendiary devices. It should come as no surprise that among the antisemitic rioters arrested for the attack was a far-left extremist who also supports Cuba’s murderous communist dictatorship, Calla Walsh.

The attack took place at the Merrimack, New Hampshire location of Elbit Systems of America, an Israeli defense contractor. The activists vandalized the property, broke windows, tried to lock the occupants inside, and carried incendiary devices, some of which were ignited on the roof of the building.

Via the New Hampshire Union Leader:

Protesters voicing support for Palestine were arrested in connection with vandalism Monday at Elbit Systems of America, a defense contractor in Merrimack, police said. 

Three people were arrested on several charges, including riot.

Police before 8 a.m. were called to 220 Daniel Webster Highway for reports of protestors blocking the driveway and multiple people believed to be on the roof.

The fire department also was sent for a report of smoke coming from the roof.


Officers discovered the front of the building had been spray painted with red paint, windows had been smashed, and at least one of the main lobby doors had been locked shut via a bicycle anti-theft device, police said.

Officers also confirmed that at least three people accessed the roof. They were charged with riot, sabotage, criminal mischief, criminal trespass and disorderly conduct.

Arrested were Sophie Marika Ross, 22, of Housatonic, Mass.; Calla Mairead Walsh, 19, of Cambridge, Mass., and Bridget Irene Shergalis, 27 of Dayville, Conn., according to police

Police said the smoke was caused by an incendiary device similar to ones later located on one of the suspects. Officers on the roof found more spray painting, smashed skylights and damage to HVAC equipment.

One of the leftist activists arrested, Calla Walsh, is a vocal supporter of Cuba’s Castro dictatorship and considered an agent of influence by the communist regime. She has traveled to Cuba and has had meetings with the Castro dictatorship’s sock puppet president Miguel Diaz-Canel both on the island and in the U.S.

Via Diario de Cuba (my translation):

The detained activist [Calla Walsh] has a public persona as an agent of influence for the Cuban regime. Despite her young age, she holds the position of co-chair of the National Network on Cuba (NNOC), a US-based group linked to Manolo de los Santos, co-director of the organization The People’s Forum. She is also one of the figures the official propaganda apparatus has promoted in recent years as a coordinator of actions in the neighboring country, especially advocating for the exclusion of Havana from Washington’s list of state sponsors of terrorism.

In April of this year, she was among the activists from US organizations who were invited to Havana on the occasion of the celebration of May Day on a “solidarity tour” coordinated by The People’s Forum.

During Díaz-Canel’s visit to New York last September to attend the UN General Assembly, Walsh took a photo with him at one of the meetings organized in that city by the Cuban representation at the United Nations.

A few days later, Walsh stood out for denouncing on social media, via video, the aggression with Molotov cocktails against the Cuban Embassy in Washington, which remains unresolved to this day.

Subsequently, she attended a demonstration of supporters of Havana outside the diplomatic headquarters, together with De los Santos and Medea Benjamin, co-founder of the organization CodePink (known for occupying the Venezuelan diplomatic headquarters in Washington for several weeks, and for the failed attempt to secure the Nobel Peace Prize for the medical brigades exported by Havana).

Though likely unaware what her first name means in Spanish, Walsh should follow the suggestion and just shut up.
