For four days in September 2017, the international weapons industry plans to set up shop in London at a huge arms fair: DSEI. The weapons sold here fuel the death, destruction and injustice perpetrated by militaries and police forces, and at borders around the world.
Because war, repression and injustice start here, let’s stop them here.
A huge week of action is planned to stop the set-up of London’s DSEI arms fair between 4-11 September 2017. Come to “This is How We Stop it” in Manchester on 6 May, and join the resistance to DSEI. At this event, activists and groups from across the North and the Midlands will be coming together to develop their plans for the week of action. We’ll also be running some workshops on the day to help you learn more about the DSEI arms fair and get skilled up to stop it.
Hear from the working groups who are planning actions and see how you could get involved, or spend the afternoon helping to come up with some new ideas!
An amazing, inspiring, effective week of action in September starts here – and we need your help to make it happen. There’s no booking required for this event, but it’d be great if you could let us know if you’re planning to come by emailing outreach(a)caat.org.uk so we can get an idea of numbers. You can also join and share the Facebook event to help us spread the word!
We hope to see you in Manchester on 6 May!
