Stop the Arms Fair 2015: Stop Arming Israel Day of Action

The DSEI, one of the world's biggest arms fairs, is coming to London this September. From 15-18 September, more than 1000 companies and 30,000 attendees will showcase their weapons and make deadly deals with buyers from across the world in the ExCel Centre London.

Israel and its arms companies have a 'National Pavilion' at DSEI to advertise 'combat proven' weaponry, i.e. weapons that have been used to devastate and destroy Palestinian communities.

September 7th will kick off a week of action in the run up to the arms fair, to make it as difficult as possible for DSEI to go ahead.

Stop Arming Israel protestors

Join us on 7 September for a day of creative action to Stop Arming Israel. Together we will transform the space outside ExCeL into a place for hope and freedom to challenge the Israeli and international arms companies’ pursuit of colonialism and death for profit.

Bring creativity, energy, banners, flags & drums!

To find out more about our Stop Arming Israel campaign, take a look at our new report, Arming Apartheid, and take action

Speaking ahead of the Supreme Court hearing on the ‘Pimlico Plumbers’ Gig Economy Case, Owen Espley Labour Rights campaigner at War on Want said:

“The supreme court case must confirm what many courts have already decided, that claiming these workers were self-employed is a ploy to dodge taxes and deny worker’s rights, such as holiday and sick pay.
