We have just launched a new petition through 38 degrees calling for the cancellation of the DSEI arms fair and for the Royal Docks Development Zone to be declared an arms trade free zone
Please sign and share the petition widely … https://you.38degrees.org.uk/petitions/no-arms-fair-in-newham/
You do not have to be from Newham to sign it. We will be taking the paper version of the petition out on street stalls and protests over the summer.
We are aware that any administrative measures by the Royal Docks development zone who lease the land to ExCeL is unlikely to stop the arms fair this September. Only a physical presence of people on the streets can disrupt, delay and hopefully stop it in 2019.
However we aim to build massive local opposition to the arms fair that will strengthen the hands of the Royal Docks development zone to cancel the next arms fair due in 2021.
