This time of year marks another anniversary of an EDO supported war crime: the invasion of Iraq. The occupation of Iraq has now been going on for 7 years, with increased attacks on Afghanistan as we speak. This year Smash EDO will be voicing our opposition to EDO's involvement on Wednesday March the 17th (as we understand that the good people of the Target Brimar campaign have something planned for the actual anniversary on the 19-20th. Keep checking their web-site http://www.targetbrimar.org.uk/ for updates and support them if you can).
WEDNESDAY THE 17TH:
12am Join us for a picket of Barclays in North Street, Brighton, to highlight their involvement in the arms trade.
3-6pm Extra long 'Horrors of War' noise demo outside EDO/ITT. Bring noise making equipment.
WEEKLY NOISE DEMOS
The weekly noise demos are the backbone of the Smash EDO campaign. Ever since the campaign started we have been reminding the company weekly of our opposition to their bloody business. The bigger the noise demos are the more effective they become! They take place between 4 and 6 EVERY Wednesday. If you have never been to a noise demo before and would like to have a chat about it (or if you've been lots and just want to be sociable!) we are meeting at 3pm, pre-demo, this Wednesday (the 18th) and next Wednesday (the 24th) at The Gladstone pub, 123 Lewes Road. We will then go up to the noise demo together.
WRITE TO ELIJAH
The decommissioner Elijah Smith has, yet again, moved prison. This time he was moved without the knowledge of people involved in supporting him. It is really important that we show him an extra amount of support as those instances can feel very alienating for someone on remand. For the moment you can write to him on the address below, although he might be moved again in time for the next decommissioner hearing at the beginning of March so keep checking the web-site for updates. He would very much appreciate if you send a few extra stamps with your letter, as it enables him to keep in touch with people on the outside and there is nowhere in the prison to get hold of them
