ITT, EDO's parent company, has a track record of clients that includes
the Nazis, Franco and the Pinochet regime. ITT continue to lobby
Western governments to pursue military action in order to boost their
profit margin. EDO/ITT may be only one cog in the global war machine
but shutting them down will throw a spanner in the works.
Since 2004 Brightonians and thousands of supporters from around the world
have demonstrated their rage at the factory through a variety of
methods. Weekly noise demos, pickets, blockades, rooftop
occupations, lobbying, street theatre, mass demonstrations and
sabotage have all been used to pile pressure on EDO to leave. Despite
being subject to a successful civilian decommissioning during
Israel's 2009 brutal assault on Gaza, the factory somehow clings on.
The summer of 2012 is the time for you to come and take action! We want
you, your mates or your affinity group to come to the factory and express your
outrage as creatively as you like. We welcome a diversity of tactics
and no action is to big or too small. We will provide accommodation,
support and advice wherever necessary.
How to get involved:
1.Talk to your mates/your group and think of ideas for action
2.Pick a date in the summer months of 2012
3. Email/call the campaign
