List of DSEi Arms fair exhibitors addresses in the West Midlands

18-08-2005 14:39

Merchants of Death dribble over the XM-395 Precision Guided Mortar Munition
DSEi (Defense Systems and Equipment International) is the largest Arms Fair in Europe. It takes place every two years at the Excel centre in East London. This year it takes place from 13th - 16th September. Arms dealers and their manufacturers from all over the world descend on London's docklands to profit from other people's misery and death.

The Resistance:

Thousands of people seek to shut DSEi down using a variety of non-violent direct action methods including affinity groups and blockades. DISARM DSEi is co-ordinating a week of action and resistance to the arms fair and the unjust global system that supports it from 10th - 16th September.

From the Disarm DSEi website

'We envisage a week of affinity group actions and public events. We are planning a conference with workshops, training sessions and information-sharing in the days leading up to the arms fair itself, which runs from 13 – 16 September. If you would like us to publicise any of your group’s events, please let us know. Disarm DSEi is a non-hierarchical organisation. We have no guidelines and work by consensus.'

Our worst nightmares

16-08-2005 21:33

Unbelievable... or prehaps not. Evidence revealed by ITV news confirms that police incompetence appears to have played a major role in their murder of Jean Charles, the Brazilian electrician shot dead on the tube. Worse still, it confirms that police repeatedly lied to excuse the fuck up.

Jean Charles was no identified leaving the building under 'surveliance' because the cop on duty was taking a piss. Then an order was made to stop Jean Charles but it was never carried out. Jean Charles took a bus unaware that his death warrent was soon to be signed by carelessness and miscommunication of the British police force. He entered the tube, walking, collected a free paper to read on the train, waved his oyster card over the sensor and passed trough the barriers like any other passenger. He proceeded down to the platform and ran for the train on the platform. Once on the train, he took his seat like everyone else, still unaware of his impending doom and the hand of the trained killers of the farce. He carried no bag and wore a thin blue denim jacket - nothing at all to cast any suspicion on him or justify his muder. Only at this stage did police identify themselves, as they shoot him dead in cold blood at poiny blank range.

Be afraid.. but be angry!
