Bombs on the underground, bombs in Iraq, guns in Harlesden, Euston, Kings Cross, in the car and under your pillow, destroying the lives of men women and children, and destroying the world in which we live, all sold to you by these nice men and women in suits, who only do this job because, "if I didn't, someone else would"..

Spearhead Exhibitions Ltd organise "the worlds biggest" weapons fair, that runs from 13 - 16 September at London's ExCel Centre in the Docklands, described by Mayor Ken Livingstone as,"..a disgrace and ought to be denounced by all Londoners".

Many Londoners are denouncing it, and are organising to protest against this event, and to ultimately, shut it down. The last time this fair took place was two years ago, when police used new anti-terror laws for the first time, on peacefull protestors, and cost Londoners 4million.

This years event looks to be no different, with a 'Public Protection Route Closure' to come into force from September 11, to help 'protect' the visitors and exhibitors who include companies from Israel, Croatia, China, Jordan, India, Pakistan, and of course the UK's very own EDO MBM, who have been receiving heavy police support in there attempts to halt local protests.

You can learn more information on how to get involved, or to, like Mayor Ken Livingstone, have your voice heard, by following any of these links;
