As part of our programme of autumn events this is a talk presented by the Campaign Against the Arms Trade (CAAT) as part of their Arming All Sides project
World War One: Arming All Sides
Date: Wednesday 29th October
Venue: Hydra Bookshop, 34 Old Market St, Bristol, BS2 0EZ
With: The Arming All Sides project
After the First World War many believed the arms trade to be a primary cause of war. The unprecedented scale of death and destruction wrought by modern weaponry led a majority of people to support disarmament and international conciliation. The Arming All Sides project questions what role the arms trade played before, during and after the war, what opposition was mounted to the trade and how the war affected what people thought about making and selling armaments. Join us to explore how the arms trade worked at the time of WW1, and to find out about modern opportunities for action against the arms trade.
