In the early hours of this morning six protesters forced entry to the Brighton building of ITT/EDO MBM. According to statements made on indymedia they proceeded to destroy “equipment inside the factory that
is used to make the weapons used in Israel’s wholesale slaughter of civilians in Gaza.”
An update claimed “the protesters inside the factory have been spotted throwing computers and filing cabinets from the top floor” and are now surrounded by police.
ITT/EDO MBM are responsible for the manufacture of release clips for F 15s and F 16s as well as the Paveway system of munitions which are currently being used by the Israeli military against civilians in Gaza.
The arms factory has been targeted by protests and direct action since the invasion of Iraq.
