The DPRTE arms fair has so far been chased out of venues in Bristol, Cardiff and Birmingham, and is now hiding behind the barbed wire fences of Farnborough Airport at its International Exhibition and Conference Centre.  This year, campaigners want to chase it out of Farnborough!

Greater Rushmore Action for Peace is organising a demonstration and vigil on 5th October, at or near the exhibition centre.

They say:

“The DPRTE arms fair at Farnborough Exhibition and Conference Centre brings together some of the world’s biggest arms manufacturers, research companies and component makers.  Exhibitors include BAE Systems, Raytheon and Lockheed Martin; companies connected to the conflicts in Yemen, Palestine and around the world.

We are ashamed that Farnborough is hosting an arms fair: we want the arms fair to be cancelled.

We want the exhibition centre to adopt an ethical exhibition policy to ensure that future events that take place reflect the highest moral standards.”
