Thursday 7 September 1100 to 1600hrs
Veterans For Peace will be taking action at the Excel Centre in East London during the set up of the DSEi Arms Fair.
Our Statement of Purpose says “we will work to end the arms race and to reduce and eventually eliminate nuclear weapons”. The DSEi Arms Fair is a key driver in the arms race.
Our Statement of Purpose says “we will work to restrain our government from intervening, overtly and covertly, in the internal affairs of other nations”. The DSEi Arms Fair provides the tools for the invasions and occupations ordered by our government.
On Thursday 7 September all members of Veterans For Peace are encouraged to attend the East Gate of the Excel Centre.
We will be carrying out citizen’s inspections of the vehicles arriving at the Arms Fair to ensure that no weapons banned under the Geneva Conventions are being brought into the fair for sale.
Meet at PRINCE REGENT DLR STATION between 1030 and 1100 on Thursday 7 September.
