DPRTE arms fair, Cardiff
8th October 2014
Protest from 8.30am
Remember last year when we caused a fuss at the DPRTE arms fair held at UWE? Well this year they’ve moved the event to Cardiff (we like to think thanks to us) and we’ll be there to show them they ain’t welcome there either.
Exhibitors include:
-BAE Systems, the world’s 3rd largest arms producer with a very special relationship with the UK government & Saudi dictatorship. BAE also supplies Israel to wage war on the Palestinans.
Airbus, previously EADS will also make an appearance, the 2nd largest arms producer in Europe. Markets include authoritarian regimes such as Saudi Arabia, UAE, and Kazakhstan
The Defence Procurement Research, Technology & Exportability (DPRTE) 2014 conference will see politicians, academics, Ministry of Defence and arms manufacturers meet. We need to be there too to say that money into war is money out of our communities and show solidarity with the victims of their arms
