From Brighton to Baghdad Smash EDO and SCHmovies presents..
'On The Verge' Shutting Down The Bomb Builders
7:30pm Thursday 8th May @ The Rainbow Warehouse, on Adderley Street, Digbeth, Birmingham - just down the road from the Rainbow Pub.
Free Entry - Donations Welcome

For 4 years a group of Brighton activists have fought to close down local weapons manufacturers EDO-MBM, who make parts for bombs used in Iraq and Palestine.
Despite police repression, arrests and imprisonment they have refused to give up, costing the company millions of pounds.

Now they need YOUR help to finally close EDO!


So far, police have intervened across the country in an attempt to censor 'On the Verge', an independent documentary about the Smash EDO campaign to shut down Brighton's weapons manufacturer EDO MBM. So far, establishments in Southampton, Chichester, Bath and Oxford as well as Brighton have come under police pressure to cancel film showings. In Brighton police intervened to prevent a showing at the Duke of York's Cinema, just one hour prior to the scheduled premiere. The Film the Police tried to Ban!

Join us for an evening featuring:


- Premiering the new full-length Smash EDO movie...


- Get the inside story of the campaign, discuss tactics and organise for the future. Smash EDO are calling for groups around the country to organise solidarity actions against companies working with EDO MBM in their local areas. This will be a chance to discuss ideas for local action.


- Round off the night with DJ Christie, Dodgy Greg and Boogie Dave
