Ratchet up the Racket: Smash EDO Summer of Resistance continues

Smashy | 11.05.2012 13:01 | Smash EDO | Afghanistan | Anti-militarism | Palestine | South Coast

Smash EDO have called for three months of direct action to close down EDO MBM - From 1st May to 1st August 2012.

On Thursday a group of us braved torrential rain to hold a surprise demo outside the gates of EDO.

On Friday, this time with the sun shining a larger group brought pots, pans, a sound system and a jazz flute up to the factory to usher the workers home at the end of another week (Friday is a half day).

There has been a demo outside the factory on every working day since the 1st May, with the police only showing up to the larger advertised ones. The workers are beginning to break their (presumably management enforced) policy of not engaging with protesters, if only to shout insults.

Next week there will be a Down the Drones demo on Wednesday and tomorrow there is a picket of Barclays, service provider to ITT, EDO's parent company, at 1pm on North Street.
