Shut ITT! Mass demonstration against arms manufacturers EDO MBM/ITT in Brighton, UK
On Wednesday 15h of October a mass protest against Brighton-based arms manufacturers EDO MBM/ITT took place in Brighton. Organised by the Smash EDO campaign, the event was called Shut ITT! and was the third such demonstration this year. Last June, Brighton saw the Carnival Against the Arms Trade, organised by Smash EDO too. During this last demonstration the 600 or so protesters managed to reach the Brighton bomb factory despite police attempts to stop them. As the march was prevented by police from reaching the EDO factory, 40 bottles of red paint are said to have been thrown over the back fence by a group of protesters who split off.
