This is part 10 of a series, for parts 1-9 see:
On May 4th Smash EDO are holding a mas s street party against war, greed and militarism. Here's a handy map of war profiteers in Brighton and Hove.
MAY THE FOURTH BE WITH YOU
Over the years Mayday has been a time to celebrate ordinary people's struggle against global capitalism. The growing anti-militarist movement is a part of that struggle. On May 4th people from across the UK and beyond will come to Brighton in a show of force against EDO MBM/ITT, who profit from the suffering of ordinary people in Iraq, Afghanistan and Palestine.
EDO MBM/ITT do not operate in a vacuum. The weapons they manufacture couldn't be produced without the support of other corporations; investors, business partners and companies providing services to them. This map plots the network of companies complicit in ITT's crimes in Brighton.
21-04-2009 00:49Despite repeated calls from the families of victims and survivors there has still been no enquiry into the London Bombings of July 7th 2005. The tragic events of that day have therefore been shrouded in doubt and confusion. With the absence of inquests the rule of law appears to have been suspended for this bomb attack which killed just over 50 innocent Londoners.

20-04-2009 19:19Hunger Strike -- Day 14 going into Day 15
Blockade of highway and parliament as there are about 1497 civilians reported killed 1/3 of them children! today as the Sri Lankan Army tried to "capture" civilians who wish to remain outside the control of the Genocidal Sinhaleese dominated army.
Police ordering people off the street as of 30 min ago . People staying put.
Come help by being witnesses to what could otherwise happen in the dark with street lights shut out (remember Westminster bridge two weeks ago on Tuesday morning)
19-04-2009 20:4628-year-old Parameswarn Subramaniyan from Mitcham is not in good health as day 13 of his hunger strike comes to a close. He started off without any water and this seems to have done its damage although he does consume water now.
Lots of other youth are joining him tomorrow in mass hunger strikes.
The demands are as follows
The demands put forward by Parameswaran follow:
* Immediate and permanent ceasefire
* Food and medical aid should be allowed to reach the civilians immediately with international monitoring committees and allow “Mercy Mission to Vanni”
* UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and UK Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, arrange to meet our representatives.
* Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam are our sole representatives and UK government should lift the ban on LTTE.
* UN should call for an immediate referendum to the Tamils regarding whether they want separate nation or to remain as Sri Lanka.
