Join us and take action to call for free movement for people, not weapons. We will be sharing food, cabaret performances, music and stories at the gates of the arms fair while an alternative “border force” take action to block weaponry and equipment from entering the fair.
In September 2017 DSEI, one of the world’s biggest arms fairs, is coming to London. The weapons sold here fuel death, destruction and injustice perpetrated by militaries, police forces and at borders around the world.
As militarised borders kill tens of thousands of people every year, arms dealers and weapons companies seeking to profit from this inhumane treatment of migrants are being welcomed to London.
We stand against those who seek to profit from these deadly borders and call for free movement for people- not weapons.
As this is a day co-organised by feminist and LGBT+ groups, we refuse to allow our identities to be used to build borders. As people who were once deemed illegal or denied rights, we say that no human is illegal.
