A mass demo against the South Coast city's weapons factory, EDO-MBM/ITT, is being staged and after the success of the last one, cops are thought to be planning a hardline approach.
Since 2001 over a million people have been killed worldwide by the US-UK War of Terror. EDO MBM/ITT supply weapons components for the US-UK war machine. Smash EDO has been campaigning for four and a half years to close down EDO.
The movement is growing - in June this year over 600 people came from around the country to the ‘Carnival Against the Arms Trade’. The Carnival managed to reach the Brighton bomb factory despite police attempts to stop it!
This time protesters expect a show of force from the police. But the mood is defiant. Said a spokesman: "We will not let them stop us showing our anger at EDO MBM’s complicity in war crimes!"
Meet Wednesday October 15th, at 12 noon opposite Falmer Station, Through the underpass, next to the Sussex University sign. (3 miles from Brighton Station)
A meeting will be held at 6pm on the evening of 14th October for all those who are travelling from around the country to the demonstration. Please try and make it down VENUE: Cowley Club, 12 London Road Brighton.
