London Counter-Recruitment Picket, Saturday September 1st 11am

29-08-2007 09:21

This Saturday - 1st September – at the Strand army recruitment centre, people will be going armed with placards and fliers to give a counter view of what life is like in the army. The army recruitment centre is coincidentally located opposite BAE Systems London HQ.

As news of US/Israeli plans for an Act of Aggression against Iran gets louder, so too does the unsubstantiated warnings from Bush/PNAC about the dire threat of another attack (which would only highlit their incompetence, and suggest responsibility).

Smash EDO Camp still resisting and actions will continue!

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.
