During January 2009 the Israeli army launched an attack on the civilian population of Gaza. Over 1400 people were killed including over 300 children. EDO supply components to the Israeli army and were hence complicit in this massacre.
On June 17th, five months after the bombing, we will be reading out the names of all 1400 people who were killed outside of the bomb factory to ensure that this war crime is not forgotten.

Sunday July 12th - Support the Decommissioners - Peace Walk from Brighton to Lewes Prison
Meet 11am at The Level, Brighton
Meet at the Level to walk to Lewes, where we will be holding a demonstration outside the prison gates.
On the 17th of January, as the bombs still rained down on Gaza, six people entered the EDO factory. They threw computers and filing cabinets out of a first floor window and took hammers to machinery used for weapons production. Their aim was to disable the war machine and to take action against those who profit from the aerial bombardment of Gaza. This walk will take place in support of the decommissoners.
Please not that the walk might change if the two people currently on remand are bailed or moved. Keep checking www.smashedo.org.uk for updates.
Wednesday July 22nd -Bikes not Bombs - Critical Mass against EDO/ITT
Meet at 3.30pm at The Level (the ride to the factory will start at 4pm). If you do not have a bike, just go straight to the factory as usual.

Every bomb that is dropped, every bullet that is fired has to be made somewhere and wherever that is it can be resisted!
