    Help Us Stop the World's Largest Arms Fair

    The ExCeL Centre plans to host the world's largest arms fair, DSEi, from 15 to 18 September 2015

    East London Against Arms Fairs plans to stop it.

    East London Against Arms Fairs (ELAAF) have been opposing the fair since it came to ExCeL in 2001 and will continue to do so until it is cancelled.

    Exhibitors at the ExCeL Centre include charities, professional bodies and respectable companies who do not know that they are supporting a venue that helps to trade weapons of death and oppression around the world.

    The DSEi arms fair invites unscrupulous arms dealers from countries with no gun control. Advanced weapons are sold to countries at war with each other. Weapons, tanks and missiles are sold to regimes that oppress their own people or attack their neighbours. Delegates from countries that need aid for health services, education or agriculture are persuaded to incur debt to purchase weapons.

    While the profits of this arms fair and ExCeL are exported to their owners in New York and Abu Dhabi, the shame of hosting the fair remains in London, and the slaughtered, bereaved and maimed victims are all over the world.

    Contact Campaign Against Arms Trade (CAAT) to find out how you can help oppose the arms trade in your area: 020 7281 0297

    If you live near East London you can help ELAAF to stop the arms fair. See our events page for details of our meetings and frequent musical protests at the ExCeL Centre.

  • ACT

    Act now!

    If you want to show how you feel about the Arm's Fair and have your voice counted, ELAAF agree with CAAT's call to:

    Stop arming repressive regimes. It's time to end government support for the arms trade and close the DSEi arms fair.

    Sign this petition against the arms fair now.

    Of course it's always great to write to your MP direct telling them what you think of the Arm's fair and ask them to take a stand against it.

    To stay in touch with us about future actions where you can call on ExCel, Arms Dealers and the Government to stop the arms fair, please e-mail elaaf@hotmail.co.uk and ask to be added to the e-mail list.
