Disarm DSEi 11 September 2007 - One Day, Many Actions
1pm Custom House
4pm Canning Town
Affinity group actions throughout the week.

Blockade? Party? Destroy? March? Smash? Infiltrate? Invade? Picket?
Harass? Clown? Dance? Light candles? Fight? Lock on? Vigil? Disrupt?
It's up to you.

From 11-14 September, Defence Systems and 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.

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.

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. 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.
