(en) Ireland, Workers Solidarity issue #93 is - WSM Supports Direct Action Against RAYTHEON

Date Thu, 12 Oct 2006 15:05:11 +0200

On Wednesday August 9th anti-war protesters in Derry stormed into the local plant
of US missile manufacturer Raytheon. They were protesting against the use of
Raytheon technology by the Israelis and used by them for their attacks in Lebanon.
After eight hours in occupation of the plant nine protesters were arrested by the
PSNI and were charged with “Unlawful Assembly” and “Aggravated Burglary” when
they appeared in court the next morning. Raytheon is claiming that £250,000 worth
of damage was done.
A WSM statement expressed support for “the actions of the anti-war protestors who
occupied and sabotaged American arms manufacturer Raytheon’s Derry offices. This
is the latest is a long line of anti-war direct actions on this island ranging
from sabotage of the weapons of war to blockading and invading the airports which
facilitate imperialist armies.

”We support direct action as a valid tactic in attacking the war industry and
hope that this Raytheon action serves as an inspiration to others, both nationally
and internationally. We believe direct action can and must be used to shut down
Shannon warport.

We call for all charges against these protestors to be dropped and call on all
anti-war groups to stand in solidarity with their acts.”
From the anarchist journal Workers Solidarity 93, Sept/Oct 2006
