Bristol Arms Walk – Sunday, 4th June, 2017

International Day for Innocent Children Victims of Aggression

10 am to 3 pm approx.

The walk is approximately 4.5 miles and passes close to two dozen arms companies and military organisations in just a couple of hours.

We start at the University of the West of England (UWE) Frenchay Campus and finish in Filton on Gloucester Road North. Bring a picnic lunch and we will finish at a pub for those still thirsty.

Meet us at 10 am on the centre at the bottom of Christmas Steps BS1 5BS to get 70/71 bus to UWE
or go directly to UWE Frenchay Campus for 11 am meet at bus stops.

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.
