Boycott ExCeL! Home of DSEi Death-Mart

Chairman Miaow | 08.07.2003 11:13 | DSEi 2003 | Anti-militarism | Globalisation | London | World

Boycott the home of Europe's largest arms fair. Boycott all companies exhibiting at the excel centre.

From 9-12 September 2003, London’s ExCeL centre is once again host to DSEi (Defence Systems Equipment International). DSEi 2003 is a British government sponsored arms fair. It will host buyers from all over the world – including countries on Amnesty International’s list of human rights abusers, and others who should be!

The arms trade, of which DSEi 2003 is an important part, is an international political business made up of multinational companies, which make products that kill and maim for profit. These companies play a leading role in the unjust global economic system, which causes poverty and abuse of human rights around the world.

We must put an end to the sale of death and destruction. We are urging people to BOYCOTT EXCEL. ExCeL is the UK’s international, conference and event centre for Europe and it is located on a 100 acre site on the northern side of Royal Victoria Dock in London’s Docklands. The venue comprises 90,000 sq. m of modern exhibition, conference and event space located between Canary Wharf and London City airport. As part of this boycott, we are urging people to write to ExCeL requesting that they not allow DSEi to go ahead. Contact ExCeL, London Docklands, E16 1XL, or phone on 020 7069 4000.

We are also asking people to write, phone, fax or email the numerous exhibitors that are planning to use ExCeL over the coming year, asking them to exhibit elsewhere unless DSEi withdraws from the ExCeL centre. A full list is available at .

BOYCOTT EXCEL is part of the DISARM DSEi group. DISARM DSEi is co-ordinating a week of action, protest and resistance against the arms fair and the unjust global system which supports it.
