The world's largest arms fair takes place at the ExCel Centre, East London, from 10-13 September this year. The Defence and Security Equiptment International, DSEI, describes itself as 'a landmark event presenting to the world the excellence of the UK defence and security businesses'. London CND says Britain's role is nothing to be proud of, including as it does the sale of arms to Saudi Arabia which fuel its war on Yemen.
A coalition of campaigns and groups, coordiated by Campaign Against Arms Trade, are coming together to protest. One of these is East London Against Arms Fairs. ELAAF has organised against DSEI for several years, and already has some music protests in place this time round – starting on Saturday 6 April.
Local CND groups and networks in London will be taking part in efforts to stop DSEI, and London CND will be coordinating CND groups across Britain to make sure they have up-to-date information they need to play their part in the 'No to Nuclear' protests.
