Bristol Activists Projection Bomb Council House Ahead of Cardiff Arms Fair

9 March, 2016


“The hands that make bombs can also break bombs”

On Monday 7th of March Bristol activists projected short films and images on to Bristol Council. The activists were raising awareness about the up coming DPRTE arms fair being held in Cardiff next week. The DPRTE arms fair was previously held in Bristol up to 2013 when protests forced it to relocate to Cardiff. Protests are planned on the opening day of this years event see Stop The Cardiff Arms Fair

Chloe Marsh spokes person from Bristol against arms trade said “We are fed up with our government along with other global powers waging illegal wars around the globe. Most global conflicts are in the interest of arms companies and oil giants, they want to control resources to benefit themselves. We have held protests against the DPRTE now for three years, we chased them out of Bristol and are confident we can do the same in Cardiff!”

From the Slave Trade to The Arms Industry

Bristolians played an active part in abolishing the slave trade, despite the economic benefits it had for the city.  Now Bristol’s wealth is tied to military aerospace and arms industries which are profiting from the current endless wars.  Time to call for conversion?

Poster imageMore than 80% of UK defence exports are in aviation. Bristol and the South West hosts one of the largest and most significant aerospace clusters in the world, worth more than 7 billion. Bristol is also home to the MOD procurement centre, which of course will have it’s own department handling Trident. Plus the offices of many of the world’s major defence companies clustered around UWE.
