In Australia, a concerted campaign of direct action stopped their arms fair in 2008. In the UK this year, a huge arms fair is threatened to take place in September, which would bring together 28,000 arms buyers and sellers. But we too can show that it is not welcome and that we will do whatever we can to stop it
Take part in a day of workshops, plotting and scheming for an end to the DSEi arms fair and an end to the arms trade.
Hear the latest on the repressive regimes and arms companies planning to attend the fair; and learn more about what goes on there. Take part in workshops covering topics from direct action to street theatre to putting your message across. Meet others to work with on challenging the fair. Help finalise plans for stopping DSEi and decide what we can do to step up the pressure before September and what action we should take if it goes ahead.
