Stop the Arms Fair has had huge success this September, with hundreds of people taking action to block the set up to the DSEI arms fair. Over 100 people were arrested during the week of action, and we need your help to support them as they face charges.

DID YOU WITNESS AN ARREST OR POLICE VIOLENCE AT THE STOP THE ARMS FAIR PROTESTS?

WE NEED YOUR WITNESS STATEMENTS!

The sooner you can send in an account and any photos/video of arrests to Green and Black Cross (GBC), the better. Key information to include for a witness statement is:

  • When, where, who
  • What else was happening on site? E.g. was the road closed by police, were other people/actions blocking the road?
  • Any photos or videos of arrests or immediately before/after

You can find a witness statement template and some advice on drafting statements on the GBC website here. Please send all materials to gbclegal@riseup.net. It makes a huge difference to people fighting charges, so please get in touch with GBC and help if you can.
