From 8-11 September, DSEi, the world's largest arms fair, will return to London. It exists so that arms buyers and sellers can come together, network and make deals. Government support - provided through the UK Trade & Investment Defence & Security Organisation, UKTI DSO - is crucial to the success of DSEi and its continued existence. It's time to end the arms fair, and end the government support that makes it possible.
Meet at the ExCeL Centre in London's Docklands for a rally to protest at the fair's opening. Then hitch a ride on the CAAT bus to take our message into central London. We'll be holding our own fayre on the doorstep of UKTI DSO, the government department that supports the arms fair.
11am: Meet at the Western Entrance of the ExCeL centre, by Tidal Basin Rd. Royal Victoria DLR station: See it on a map.
Depart ExCeL at 12 noon, to arrive in Central London at approximately 1pm. During the drive to the UKTI DSO offices, we're having a guided tour pointing out some of the nastier places in London and their connections to the arms trade.
1-3pm. Outside UKTI offices, Kingsgate House, 66-74 Victoria Street, London SW1E 6SW. See it on a map
