On Thursday September 7th 2017, Lewisham and Greenwich CND protested at the DSEI arms fair. The theme of the day's blockade was 'Free Movement for People, not Weapons!'
DSEI is one of the world’s biggest arms fairs. For one week every two years, in East London, arms companies display their weapons to buyers from around the world, including countries in conflict, authoritarian regimes and countries with serious human rights problems.
The UK government helps to organise this arms fair, invites these military buyers from around the world, and helps arms companies to make deals, at taxpayer expense.
