The UK is a major player in the global arms trade. The global arms trade is a major player in displacing people. It’s also a major player in dealing out death and destruction. The UK has a major contract with Saudi Arabia. Saudi Arabia are pulverising Yemen with those UK supplied weapons. The UK is also host to the DSEI (Defence and Security Equipment International) trade show.
It is a glorious event in which weapons manufacturers and security experts come together to sell each other the latest in deathdealing technology, border control innovations and gizmos to keep the general public in line. People power can stop this. Brighton campaigners against the Arms trade will be having a stall opposite the Theatre Royal this Saturday, 1 April between 11 and one. Come down to show your support and find out more.
