The two previous inspection attempts have resulted in stiff resistance from Sussex Police, who have refused to investigate war crimes being committed by the company.
This mass action is part of an ongoing "Summer of Resistance" which has seen almost daily actions by protesters against the factory in May and June and which will continue until the end of July.
Protester Howard Stone said "It seems every day we hear of attacks on civilians by fighter jets and drones around the world and I do not find it acceptable that parts to facilitate this are made in my neighbourhood". Smash EDO wish it to be known that other events that may happen to be taking place in the city that day are of no interest to the group. Our intention is, as ever, only to disrupt the Arms Industry and those who support its continued existence.
