When London plays host to one of the world’s largest arms fairs, war, repression and injustice start here.
That’s why a huge and diverse movement is building to shut the arms fair down on 4-11 September before it even gets started.
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, police forces and at borders around the world. In 2015, hundreds of people took part in a huge week of action to stop the set up of the arms fair – the biggest-ever protests against DSEI. For six days we blocked entrances, disrupting the set-up of the fair.
With the arms fair planning to return in 2017, the protests will be even bigger and – with your help – we plan to shut it down for good!
A week of action has been called for the 4 – 11 September 2017, and we need everyone to help make it happen.
If you’d like to join the action, there’s plenty of ways to get involved. You can:
- Come to a Stop the Arms Fair event, and get stuck into helping organise action against the DSEI arms fair
- Book a speaker or workshop on the arms fair for your group by emailing outreach(a)caat.org.uk
- Join us on 22 – 23 July for It Starts Here, and get skilled up to help stop the arms fair!
War, repression and injustice start here. But so does our resistance.
