[Activists protest outside the DSEI London arms fair, 2017.]
Together weve driven the arms trade out of cities across the UK and beyond. Will you help make 2019 DSEI protests even bigger? ([link removed]
IN JUST TWO MONTHS, ONE OF THE WORLD'S BIGGEST ARMS FAIRS WILL SET UP SHOP IN LONDON.
In 2017, rolling creative actions and blockades disrupted the set up of the arms fair, forcing the arms trade into the public eye. Will you help make 2019 even bigger? ([link removed]
Together, we can shut them down.
The DPRTE arms fair has now been forced out of three cities under pressure from protests: Bristol, Cardiff, and Birmingham. The 2008 Asia-Pacific Defence and Security Exhibition was cancelled due to “the cost of security”. In 2019 Glasgow City Council promised it would never host another arms fair again. We know we can stop them.
