Demo Against ‘Defense’ Event at UWE, Wednesday 20th November

17 November, 2013

DEMO AGAINST THE DPRTE CONFERENCE @ FRENCHAY CAMPUS UWE
THIS WED,
8am onwards.

Meet at the North Entrance, Frenchay Campus moving on to outside the Exhibition and Conference Centre

This Wednesday (20th) ‘the UK’s leading Defence Procurement Event‘ is coming to town and will be held at the Exhibition and Conference centre at UWE. Attendees of the conference include the likes of Raytheon (delivery of cluster bombs, products found in Iraq, Lebanon and Palestine), Chemring (tear gas used in the Arab Spring), Babcock (nuclear specialists) and our all time favourite BAE Systems.

We will be holding a non violent protest outside the event as delegates arrive to show they are not welcome. We will be meeting at 8am at the North Entrance to Frenchay Campus of UWE and will then move over to the exhibition centre. A map of UWE can be found here:

Please bring along pots and pans, drums, whistles and anything else to make as much NOISE as possible. Also bring banners and  dress up warm!

Students will be attempting to  occupy the building the night before and holding a Beats not Bombs party. See https://www.facebook.com/NOWMDatUWE
