On May 1st we will be holding a big noise demo at EDO/ITT starting
at 12pm.


Please come along and help kick off the Summer with a
bang. Bring pots, pans, musical instruments and sound systems.

If you have never been to the factory before, on fancy going up there with a group, you can come to to Cowley Club, 12 London Road, Brighton at 11pm on the 1st of May and we'll all go up together.

If you are coming from out of town please email if
you need any info or help with accommodation.

The EDO/ITT factory is located on Home Farm Road, off the Lewes Road, close to Moulsecoomb station.

Here are our full upcoming events:

28th of April: Smash EDO Summer of Resistance workshop at the Campaign
Against the Arms Trade gathering. Details TBA

Come along to these even if you are not planning your own action.

1st of May: Demo to mark the start of the Summer of Resistance, 12pm
outside EDO/ITT, Home Farm Road, Brighton. Although the summer is not
about one particular event being successful, but about continious
pressure on the factory, it would be great to see a lot of you up at
the factory on mayday to show them what's coming! Bring noise.

play your instruments as badly as you can.
