Posted by anti militarist on January 18, 2010

More than 1400 Palestinians were killed by Israeli forces between December 27th and January18th, more than 400 of which were children. They deliberately targeted individuals in their homes, schools, hospitals as well as U.N compounds.

EDO MBM make vital components for the Paveway munitions, and bomb release clips for F15 and F16 fighter aircraft and have contracts with the Israeli Military

During the bombardment six ordinary people took disarmament into their own hands for the well-being of those in Gaza where governments and international law  failed to act.

“If you hear the sound of a child being brutalised in the house next door and you rush in to smash the door down and save the child, should you be charged with breaking and entering? Obviously not.” Wrote  Eamonn McCann of the Raytheon 9.

Nine people have been charged with Criminal Damage, and conspiracy to cause criminal damage, they have put their freedom on the line and they need your support, especially Elijah James Smith a year on remand without trial.

Elijah Smith was transferred back from Elmley Prison in Kent on Monday 1st  March Following the preliminary court hearing.

Letters of support now really important as he’s been inside for over a year without trial.
