Bristol is home to the MoD’s Defence Equipment and Support Agency (DE&S) and has one of the largest defence/aerospace sectors in Europe. Bristol companies are involved in the design and manufacture of components for missiles and fighter jets used in current conflicts such as Yemen, Iraq and Syria.
Many victims of these conflicts are children and 4th June is International Day for Innocent Children Victims of Aggression
During this walk we will be discussing what security really means and how we can create a safer world for all our children.
