In 2004 a group of Brighton peace campaigners began to bang pot and
pans outside their local arms manufacturers EDO MBM in disgust of their
part in the Iraq war. This has grown into the Smash EDO campaign, which
has cost the company millions, been the subject of large scale police
operations and has tested the right to protest in the UK.
Using activist, police and CCTV footage plus interviews with those
involved in the campaign, On The Verge tells the story of one of the
most persistent and imaginative campaigns to emerge out of the UK's
anti-war movement and direct action scene.
"Every bomb that is dropped, every bullet that is fired in the name of
this War of Terror has to be made somewhere. And wherever that is, it
can be resisted” - Smash EDO
