Dear friend

We may have won in Court - with UK arms sales to Saudi Arabia judged unlawful - but much is left to do. The UK government says it plans to keep fighting us in the courts – and, in the meantime, it is still working to secure more arms sales.

In just two months time, the global arms trade will return to London to attend the worlds third largest arms fair, selling the latest in war technology, from sniper rifles to missiles.

UK government support makes it all happen. From inviting buyers like Saudi Arabia to attend, to paying the wages of military staff demonstrating arms company products. If government were to withdraw its support, it would be a crushing blow to the arms industry.

End government support for the arms fair now ([link removed]

The government has drastically cut support for vital public services, yet is always willing to support the arms trade through events like this, events that spark war and suffering for millions.

Email the Secretary of State for International Trade today ([link removed]

Call on Liam Fox, the Minister responsible for the Defence & Security Organisation who organise the arms fair, to look beyond arms trade profits, to the devastating human impact of the equipment DSEI promotes, and withdraw all UK support now.

While he's feeling the heat from fellow MPs and the public after the verdict on Saudi arms sales, let's remind him we should be stopping arms sales, not promoting more.

Thank you for your support.
