Event description
The movement to #StopDSEI is growing: join activists from around the world to skillshare and build our movement to stop the arms fair!

About this Event

The movement to #StopDSEI is growing.

Every two years the global arms trade sets up shop in East London. The #DSEI arms fair returns in September 2019. We are many. Together we can shut it down.

Join migrant solidarity groups, anti-nuclear crews, LGBTQIA+ folk, Palestine solidarity activists, academics. Join anti-frackers, women, green groups, anti-racism organisers, those moved by their faith. People from the local community will join those from all over the world. Together we will take action.

On the 9 and 10 March 2019, we will come together in London. We will skillshare and learn, link up and discuss. We will have workshops, panels and space to meet people and build our strength.

No one will be turned away for lack of funds. If you cannot afford a ticket, email events@caat.org.uk and we will arrange one for you. We can also offer support with travel costs, accommodation and childcare (see below).
