Posted by anti militarist on November 19, 2009

Elijah Smith is still in jail 1 year on from his part in the decommissioning of the EDO/MBM/ITT factory in Brighton.  EDO make parts for the weapons  used by the Israeli army to bomb civilians in Gaza. Nobody was injured or harassed during their action, which was one of damage to property only. Elijah and his co-defendants did not resist arrest.

The trial will now be held on May 17th in the Brighton area

Posted by anti militarist on November 9, 2009
