One Year to Stop the Arms FairAugust 23, 2016
As part of an international month of action against arms fairs, CAAT is launching “One Year to #StopDSEI”.
When the DSEI arms fair took place in 2015, its setup was disrupted by six consecutive days of creative blockades; the London transport system was subvertised with spoof ads which were seen by hundreds of thousands of people and over 10,000 people signed a petition calling on David Cameron to ‘welcome refugees, not arms dealers’.
