On Wednesday 10th September seven protesters breached the million pound security operation of the DSEi Arms Fair in Docklands.

The seven protesters penetrated the security cordon disguised as the highly-accredited public relations company "Affinity PR". Five climbed on top of an Armoured Personnnel Carrier, and two locked themselves into it, to the astonishment of spectators in expensive suits. The tank belonged to UK company Alvis, whose armoured vehicles are being used by the Indonesian army to repress the people of Aceh. A special audio greeting was left for the enjoyment of all arms traders present.
