For four days in September 2019, the international weapons industry plans to set up shop in London at a huge arms fair, DSEI.
In 2017, hundreds of people took part in a huge week of action to disrupt the set up of the arms fair, and this year we will be back to say No to the arms trade. A week of action has been called for the 2 – 10 September 2019, and people from across the country will be taking a stand.
Quakers from across the country will be taking part through Roots of Resistance. At July Area Business Meeting, Central England Quakers minuted support for this, and encouraged Friends to take part.
With one month to go before the protests, this event is a chance to find out more, meet like-minded people who care about this issue, and make plans for how you’d like to join in the protests. This event is for everyone, but there will be an opportunity for part of the day to get together with other Quakers and hear about the Roots of Resistance actions.
Arrive 10:30 for 11am. We will be finished by 4pm.
All welcome, whether you’re a seasoned campaigner, or totally new! For more info, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Jointly organised by Birmingham Stop the Arms Fair, Campaign Against Arms Trade & Peace Hub.
