About

Stop The Arms Fair is a coalition of groups and individuals who have joined forces to put an end to DSEI and all UK arms fairs.

DSEI is the world’s biggest arms fair. For one week every two years, in East London, arms companies display their weapons to buyers from around the world, including authoritarian regimes and countries with serious human rights problems.

The UK government helps to organise this arms fair, invites these repressive regimes, and helps arms companies to make deals, at taxpayer expense.

This has to stop, and together we can stop it.

DSEi is planning to return in September 2015 and we are already working to stop it. Join us as we target the arms fair, its organisers and the exhibitors that make a profit from killing and repression.

Check out our events page to see what we’ve got planned in the coming months. Join us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter, spread the word, and join us on the streets as we mobilise to Stop The Arms Fair!
