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

Find out more about the 7 September event and DSEI at the Stop the Arms Fair Coalition website or if you're on facebook, rsvp on the event page.

Open Letter: Energy Charter Treaty

9 December 2019 - 4:00pm

War on Want has joined with over 270 other civil society organisations to call out dangers which the Energy Charter Treaty [ECT] poses to effective action on climate change.

The ECT is incompatible with the Paris Climate Agreement, Just Transition policies, and the expected European Green Deal, because it is used by large fossil and nuclear energy companies to lock-in their investments and challenge national government decisions to phase out dirty energy. The ECT contains measures to protect energy investments even where they contradict climate goals. And it has an Investor State Dispute Settlement (ISDS) mechanism that allows foreign investors in the energy sector to directly sue governments outside of existing courts, in secretive international tribunals, claiming up to billions in compensation if their (future) profits are affected. 

You can read the full open letter below.
