Why Take Action?

The Defence and Security Equipment International (‘DSEI’) arms fair is one of the biggest arms fairs in the world, and it returns to London this September, with the political and financial support of the UK government.

Arms companies like BAE Systems will be there promoting their bombs and fighter planes, and military delegations from conflict zones and repressive regimes will network and agree weapons deals.

We will be there to say no to DSEI: not here, not anywhere.

What’s Happening?

Join us, and bring your own placards, banners, and creative actions. There will be talks, performances and actions, celebrating the future we want to see, where migrants and refugees are welcomed, not arms dealers.

Feel free to just turn up on the day, or message us to get involved or find out more.  More detail to follow soon.
