(Image by https://www.facebook.com/lgsmigrants/)

Sunday September 8 2019 from 11,30 am to 8pm

EXCeL London –  One Western Gateway, Royal Victoria Dock, E16 1XL

Organized by Campaign Against Arms TradeStop The Arms Fair and Lesbians and Gays Support the Migrants

The Defence and Security Equipment International (‘DSEI’) arms fair is one of the biggest arms fairs in the world, and it returns to London this September, with the political and financial support of the UK government.

Arms companies like BAE Systems will be there promoting their bombs and fighter planes, and military delegations from conflict zones and repressive regimes will network and agree weapons deals.

We will be there to say no to DSEI: not here, not anywhere.

Join us, and bring your own banners, placards, picnics and creative actions. There will be talks, performances and actions, celebrating the future we want to see, where migrants and refugees are welcomed, not arms dealers.

Feel free to just turn up on the day, or message us to get involved or find out more. More detail to follow soon.

Solidarity smashes borders.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer

We must act and dare the appropiateness and not whatever comes to our mind not floating in the likelihood but grasp the reality as brave as we can be freedom lies in action not in the absence of mind obedience knows the essence of good and satisfies it, freedom dares to act and returns God the ultimate judgment of what is right and what is wrong, Obedience performs blindly but Freedom is wide awake Freedom wants to know why, Obedience has its hands tied, Freedom is inventive obedient man respects God’s commands and by virtu of his Freedom, he creats new commands. Both Obedience and Freedom come true in responsability (Dietrich Bonhoeffer)
