Space hijacker action on Saturday!September 8, 2011
Calling All Agents,
From 13th – 16th September the DSEI Arms Fair once again invades East
London. A one stop shop for all dictators, and wannabe militia, this
is THE WORLDS LARGEST ARMS FAIR. Previously displaying everything from
warships to cluster bombs (yes even while they were illegal), DSEI is
like one of George Bush or Gadaffi’s wet dreams.
Organised by Clarion Events it’s a bi-annual fair hosted in the ExCeL
centre in the Docklands. This one takes place inbetween the Spirit of
Christmas Fair and the Baby show which they also organise, honestly
we’re not even making this up!
The Space Hijackers have a history of being a thorn in the side of the
arms dealers and buyers who come to the fair, mainly because we think
it’s fucking disgusting that these things not only happen on our door
step, but are supported by the UK government. We’ve done everything
from trying to sell prosthetic limbs (arms) to the arms dealers,
through to driving a tank up to their front door in an attempt to get
the rather silent media to cover the event.
“But the Defense industry is essential for the economy!” we hear them
cry. At some point we have to take a moral stance on what kind of
country we want to be, the slave trade and many other things were once
“essential for the economy” thankfully we’ve put those days behind us.
Pissed off? You should be.
Join us at our next planning meeting this evening Thursday 8th
September, at Space Hijackers HQ. We’ve been working on a project
(which we have to keep under wraps for now) and would love you to get
If you can’t make it along to the planning meeting, then join us on
our day of action, this Saturday from 10am till mid afternoon.
If you can’t make either, then phone up a paper, write to your MP, and
make a stink about this nasty little event. Check out
