The UK government is one of the largest arms dealers in the world, selling weapons to authoritarian and human rights abusing regimes across the globe. UK manufactured weapons, including smart bombs manufactured in Scotland, are now fuelling a vicious war in Yemen.

The Defence and Security Equipment International DSEI 2019 - strapline "Celebrating Twenty Years" - is due to happen Tuesday 10 to Thursday 13 September 2019 in London Docklands. We hope to act to close down the preparations Monday 2 to Monday 9 September 2019.

See also the campaigners' workshop 9.30-5pm on Saturday 18 May in same location - where Peace News facilitators will share experiences of "How We Win: Guide to Nonviolent Direct Action Campaigning".
All welcome! Book workshop:
