Mayday solidarity actions began in the early hours of this morning
with a pre-emptive strike against the arms trade in Central London.
"The Hatton", home of SMi defence conferences, was daubed in high
quality red paint and "Dealers in Death" was sprayed on the window.

A spokesperson for the group said "This is the beginning of a series
of protests against this trade in death and destruction. Arms
companies are multinationals that operate above the law but we will
make them accountable."

Notes for Editors:
1. Mayday solidarity actions are taking place all week up until
Mayday. See www.ourmayday.org.uk for details.
2. SMi hold regular defence conferences at "The Hatton", Hatton
Gardens, Faringdon. From 28th-29th April they are hosting

[Ed. Note:
From their web page:

At the moment, we run the factories, the hospitals, the transport and energy
systems, we produce and distribute the food and other things we need, we
build the houses and teach our children and clean the streets and run the
water system. All the bosses and owners and landlords do is clean off the
profits, and all the politicians do is make more laws to keep us in our
place. We can run things ourselves much better.

We want a free society where no individual owns property, factories and
profits. These are community resources, tended and produced by many
individuals, and should therefore belong collectively to the community,
not to a small elite group.

We want a society without money or profit, where people use resources
according to their needs and give according to their abilities.

We want a society based on co-operation, where we all have an equal
say in the decisions which affect us. People feel happier and behave
better towards each other when they have a say in what happens to them.
Therefore we want to get rid of centralised government and hierarchy
where decisions are made by an elite few and handed down from on high.
Instead we want decisions to be made in our workplaces and our communities,
by us, the people who are affected by those decisions.

We want work which is of benefit to ourselves and our communities.
Where communities come together and discuss what kinds of products
and services are needed, whether food, hospitals, schools, housing
or energy. Communities and workers decide together how, when and
where necessities are produced, what technologies are used, and
collaborate with other sectors to co-ordinate supply, distribution
and exchange, development and research.

We want work to be voluntary, co-operative and self-managed. Where
workers unite to manage themselves, they will act in their own
interest and ensure decent, pleasant, safe working conditions.
Both interesting work and unpleasant tasks are likely to be shared out,
making work more varied and interesting. People tend to enjoy learning
and sharing skills, and this allows everyone to develop and contribute
ideas and inventiveness. People find work more rewarding when they
know it is useful, valuable, worthwhile.
