This September, one of the world’s biggest arms fairs is coming to London’s ExCeL centre. Help us to stop it! Join us for a week of action at the ExCeL Centre from 7 – 12 September.
The DSEI arms fair is where arms companies showcase their weapons and make deadly deals with buyers from across the world, including those from countries with serious human rights problems. The arms fair, due to take place on 15-18 September, involves more than 1000 companies and 30,000 attendees.
We have to stop these companies profiting from conflict and repression. Join us from 7 September for a week of action in the run up to the arms fair to make it as difficult as possible for it to go ahead. Each day different groups will be organising actions highlighting the different impacts of the arms trade and repression.
Exhibition equipment and military hardware will be rolling (or sailing) into ExCeL – let’s stop it getting to its destination.
Monday 7 September: Stop Arming Israel
Tuesday 8 September: No Faith in War
Wednesday 9 September: Stop the Arms Fair: Arms to Renewables
Thursday 10 September: Welfare not Warfare!
Friday 11 September: Freedom of Movement for People not Weapons
Saturday 12 September: Big day of action!
On Saturday 12 September there will be a big day of action on the weekend before the arms fair begins to stop the arms dealers going about their deadly business.
