A sinister visitation will be arriving in east London on 13th September – the DSEI arms fair at the Excel Centre.
Among the repressive regimes buying and selling arms, Israel will be putting on a showcase of its ‘battle-tested’ weapons that have injured and killed thousands of Palestinians.
To protest at this atrocious event, Tower Hamlets Jenin Friendship Association will have a banner making workshop on Sunday 11th September at 2pm at Mile End Park in preparation for the protest. We will meet outside the Palm Tree pub, off the canal and Haverfield Road and will move on to the park proper to make our banner.
We will meet at St Barnabas Church, off Roman Road, Bow in the event of rain.
Initial ideas for the banner include making a mock separation Wall decorated with text detailing incidents of injury and death from Israeli/ UK made arms.
Come and join us in making a statement against the profiteering by UK and Israel in maiming and killing Palestinians!
