DISARM DSEI !
Windows were smashed and paint bombs thrown as hundreds of anti arms protesters descended on The City to voice their anger against the investors in the arms trade.
The protest, designed to coincide with the opening of DSEi – Defence Systems Equipment International – the world’s largest arms fair – focussed on targeting some of the biggest backers of the arms trade, including Barclays, Legal and General and Axa. British Telecom, who have a £59 million share in the arms trade were also occupied.
Sophie Williams, from DISARM DSEi said “Any damage caused pales into insignificance in comparison with the destruction UK weapons have caused worldwide. The only way to make these companies divest from the arms trade is to hit them economically, and today’s action is part of growing movement of direct action against the dealers in death and the money behind them.”
