Defence & Security Equipment International (DSEi) Arms Fair: http://www.caat.org.uk/
This arms fair is one of the largest in the world. At the last DSEi arms fair in 2009, the guests included an impressive number of A-list repressive regimes seeking to shore up their power with the latest weapons technologies: Algeria, Bahrain, Libya, Saudi Arabia, and more!
Just months after its attack on Gaza in 2008-9, Israel hosted a huge pavilion of its “battle-tested” exports. Countries that are at threat of war with each other – such as India and Pakistan – shopped side-by-side.
In 2011, DSEi publicity boasts that the arms fair will be “even bigger” and will host the “Largest Unmanned & Robotics Demonstration area in Europe”.
Take part in the Day of Action on Tue 13 Sept and keep your eyes peeled for other events and actions during the week to stop the arms fair.
We will have a TH contingent on the day, do get in touch if you would like to be involved by e-mailing: firstname.lastname@example.org
