When London plays host to one of the world’s largest arms fairs…

War, repression and injustice start here. But so does our resistance.

The weekend of 22 – 23 July is when you can get involved too. Book your tickets now on Eventbrite.

Saturday 22 July, 10am – 5.30pm: Hear from powerful speakers, take part in workshops and learn from the inspiring groups already taking action.

Saturday 22nd July, from 7.30pm: Join us for Dance to Disarm at Rich Mix, for an evening of thought provoking spoken word, politically conscious live music, and DJs dropping floor-filling beats from around the world.

Sunday 23 July 1pm – 5pm: In-depth training to prepare for September’s action. Build the confidence and skills you need to start legal observing, taking direct action and get stuck into prop making!
