Disarm DSEi will be meeting at 12 noon on Tuesday 8th September outside the Royal Bank of Scotland on Whitechapel High Street, near Aldgate East Tube, before going on to visit several companies in the City of London that invest in the arms trade.
Defence Systems Equipment International (DSEi)—the world’s largest arms fair—is due to take place in East London between 8 and 11 September 2009. At DSEi 2007, there were 1352 exhibitors from 40 different countries with a total of 26,5000 visitors.
Bring post-it notes to write messages exposing these investors, and shoes, the symbolic object of protest popularized in December by Iraqi journalist Muntadhar al-Zaidi, who threw his shoes at George W. Bush.
There is a map showing arms companies and the City of London companies that invest in them them at http://www.dsei.org/city-map
Come to The City with love and rage; music and militancy; desire and determination—together we can show we will no longer tolerate the death and destruction they cause.
For those coming from outside London, there will be accommodation available from Sunday. Check www.dsei.org or phone 07792 813907 for details. <!-- / content --> <!-- creator --> Disarm DSEi
