Come along and learn about Smash EDO and the Summer of Resistance. Stick around for a Peoples Kitchen Vegan meal!
Since 2001, EDO/ITT’s products have been used to attack civilian populations in Afghanistan, Gaza, Iraq, Lebanon, Somalia and Pakistan. ITT, EDO’s parent company, has a track record of clients that includes the Nazis, Franco and the Pinochet regime. ITT continue to lobby Western governments to pursue military action in order to boost their profit margin. EDO/ITT may be only one cog in the global war machine but shutting them down will throw a spanner in the works.
Since 2004 Brightonians and thousands of supporters from around the world have demonstrated their rage at the factory through a variety of methods. Weekly noise demos, pickets, blockades, rooftop occupations, lobbying, street theatre, mass demonstrations and sabotage have all been used to pile pressure on EDO to leave. Despite being subject to a successful civilian decommissioning during Israel’s 2009 brutal assault on Gaza, the factory somehow clings on.
MONDAY 27th, 3.30pm
Starting this Monday, we will be hosting a women’s self defence workshop.
These workshops are about learning and practising a variety of simple, yet effective physical and mental self-protection techniques, which can give women an improved level of confidence in handling difficult situations. The course will also hopefully develop greater awareness and assertiveness so that the physical skills will hopefully not be needed!
