In the early hours of Tuesday morning (26th), Smash EDO activists glued and locked themselves to the gates of Brighton arms company EDO MBM/ITT. Their actions delayed the opening of the factory, disrupted deliveries and forced EDO manager Paul Hills to, once again, cut a large hole in his own fence.

Having been given 10 minutes to unlock themselves by Paul Hills and friendly local bobby Sean McDonald all three naïvely agreed. They were then arrested anyway for aggravated trespass and criminal damage. Later released on police bail, conditions of which include not going within 100 metres of EDO, preventing them from attending weekly noise demos for at least 6 weeks. To make up for their absence get yerself down to EDO on Home Farm Rd 4-6pm every Wednesday.
