What is DSEI?
DSEI (Defence & Security Equipment International) is the world’s largest arms fair. It allows arms buyers and sellers to network and make deals. It happens once every two years, in the second week in September, at ExCeL – the huge exhibition centre in London Docklands.
You can find out more on the website of Campaign Against Arms Trade.
Israel has a massive presence at DSEI. They use the mass murder of Palestinians as a selling point, calling weapons “battle tested”. The Palestinian voice is clear: until there are sanctions against Israel, we need to take matters into our own hands.
If they can’t get the weapons in, then they can’t have an arms fair. London Palestine Action are kicking off this ‘week of action’ to block the set-up with a day to Stop Arming Israel! With music, workshops, and bucket-loads of food, we are using our creativity to shut down their destruction. Please join and share the Facebook event to help us spread the word, and check out the action report from 2015 to see what we did last time DSEI came to town!
A group of us from Brighton will be playing a part in the Stop Arming Israel day on September 4th. To find out how you can get involved, contact us using the ‘CONTACT US’ link at the bottom of this page.
