17:30 update

Sussex police have taken all the tents including the large marquee.

Someone locked onto the pole of the marquee confused around 50 police for a good hour. Eventually they had to lock-off because police were talking about dismantling the marquee, which would have been extremely dangerous for the locked-on protester.

There are reports that there are still people up in the trees on the site.

Two people have been arrested for aggravated trespass at Fishersgate, the second EDO factory where a rooftop demonstration happened this morning. The arrestees are currently being held at Worthing Police Station.

A Critical Mass, 'Bikes not Bombs' is just about to depart from the Level in Brighton.

Despite this minor setback, actions will continue against the Brighton bomb builders, and Smash EDO are calling for people to come to Brighton and participate in actions against EDO.

"Every bomb that is dropped, every bullet that is fired in the name of this war of terror has to be made somewhere. And wherever that is, it can be RESISTED"

Have just spoken to the camp - the police have left with the tents and Marquee and people are determined to remain there, with plans to sleep under tarps for the nights. A number of actions are planned for tomorrow, and will go ahead.

It appears that there was at least one FIT officer from the Met there during the evicition, and that the Chief Exec of the Council was approached by the police and gave permission for an eviction if there was any illegal activity. The camp feels that the police have abused this agreement. The local paper the Argus was present during the tent-stealing operation, and filmed the events. they have told the camp that footage will be uploaded to their website (

Pictures from the day will be uploaded to the Indymedia newswire in the near future.
