Remember Gaza?

January 13th, 2010 · post by Fred Goodsell · 1 Comment


In January 2009 the Israeli government and army stepped up its repression of those inhabiting the Gaza strip. A brutal military campaign resulted in the deaths of 1,400 Palestinians.

Many protests took place around the world including in London where the first riots of 2009 where seen and a wave of university occupations.

On January 18th the Smash EDO campaign is holding a national protest in remembrance of those that where killed and to question EDO ITT’s (the Brighton based arms manufacturer) involvement in the bombings.

We want to smash the war machine not only in solidarity with the people of Gaza but also in the fight for our own freedom. We want arms factories and dealers out of our communities.

The protest is taking place at an yet-to-be-announced location in Brighton.
