Where: Motorpoint Arena, Mary Ann Street, Cardiff
When: 27th March 2018
The Cardiff Arms Fair (DPRTE – Defence Procurement, Research, Technology and Exportability Exhibition) described on their website as the “UK’s Premier Defence Procurement Event” is being hosted annually at the Cardiff Motorpoint Arena. One of their main exhibitors is BAE Systems, the world’s 3rd largest arms producer, whose weapons are currently being used by the Saudi led coalition to attack Yemen. An already impoverished country, Yemen is now in the throes of a humanitarian crisis as a result of these attacks using British made armaments, as shown in this video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=duMj19QYW5o
Local people will be protesting vociferously and creatively on the 27th of March. We need to protest against such an event being held in Wales and show our opposition to the arms trade. Come and join us.
