DSEi (Defence Systems & Equipment international), the world's largest arms fair, returns to East London's ExCeL Centre from 11-14 September. Despite massive local opposition, and a huge bill to the taxpayer, arms dealers will once again be free to deal in death and destruction.

Brighton's Cowley Club: 7pm - Wednesday 20th June
Disarm DSEi meeting discussing aspects of the arms trade, and hopefully forming a local group to oppose the arms fair when it meets in September.

Individuals from London will be coming to discuss what's been happening in the city in preparation and give feedback on previous protests against DSEi.

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.
