Count Dracula visited EDO/MBM technology last night and smeared the walls with blood. He left a message daubed on the walls '...BLOOD ON YOUR HANDS'.
The count encourages all aspiring ghouls and ghosties to visit the factory in the run up to Halloween.
EDO MBM Technology Ltd in Brighton make bomb release mechanisms for various warplanes including F-16s and Tornados as well as parts for the Paveway series of bombs (all used in Iraq). This is not the first sign of local discontent with death-profiteering - in May, 10 activists were arrested after a blockade and rooftop occupation which shut the firm down for the day, costing them over £17,000 (1). A week-long protest camp including an overnight rooftop occupation in August/September cost EDO around £20,000 (2). The bottom line is - We won't tolerate arms dealing in our community or in anyone else's! Somebody also 'spilt' red paint over their windows (3) and dumped large quantities of manure outside the front door (4)
ACTIVISTS ARE GIVING EDO/MBM A CLEAR MESSAGE, THEY WILL BE HERE UNTIL EDO/MBM AREN'T
