The 2019 arms fair was held at the excel centre in London last week. 1,600 weapons companies attend to show off their instruments of terror to representatives of governments, such as that of Saudi Arabia, on the UK’s own human rights abusers list. Thousands of activists went down to resist the event, road blocks and huge banner drops disrupted the week of set up preceding the fair. Big respect to all those who went to exercise their dissent, especially the 100 or so arrested.
Let’s galvanise our opposition to this abhorrent event ever being held in the capital again.
