Shut ITT - Mass Demo Against the Arms Trade, Meet Opposite Falmer Station (through underpass, on opposite side of road) more

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.

Our 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 us!

This time we expect a show of force from the police. We will not let them stop us showing our anger at EDO MBM’s complicity in war crimes...
Meet October 15th, at 12 noon opposite Falmer Station, Through the underpass, next to the Sussex University sign. (3 miles from Brighton Station)
Wear RED! Bring whistles, banners, drums... be ready to make some noise
Shut down the Brighton bomb makers!
