Blockade? Party? Destroy? March? Smash? Infiltrate? Invade? Picket? Harass? Clown? Dance? Light candles? Fight? Lock on? Vigil? Disrupt?
You Decide!
In the run up to DSEi 2007, DISARM DSEi is calling for two days of autonomous actions against the arms trade.

There were 1,201 exhibitors at the last DSEi. Find out where your nearest (see for further information). Take action and say no to death and destruction on your doorstep.

DSEi 2007
From 11-14 September, DSEi (Defence Systems & Equipment international), the world's largest arms fair, returns to East London's ExCeL Centre.

Despite massive local opposition, and a huge bill to the taxpayer, arms dealers will once again be free to deal in death and destruction.

Against the War — Against the Arms Trade
`Stop the War' (whichever war) is useless sloganeering unless it is accompanied by a commitment to stopping the global arms trade. War will never stop whilst weapon sales are a booming capitalist business worth in the region of $40 billion a year.

In 2005, DSEi hosted 1,100 companies, 70 official military delegation and 20,000 visitors from across the globe. Many of the countries invited were at war, some with each other. Many were dictatorships with appalling human rights records. Many had huge national debts with populations in severe states of poverty and starvation.

There are no borders, no limitations and certainly no morals when it comes to arms trading. Whilst countries such as the US and UK pretend to restrict the sale of arms, there are enough loopholes to enable dealers to trade whatever they like, to whoever they like.

We must not let them meet without disruption and opposition. Join us and take action.

Say no to war. Say no to the arms trade.
