Greater Rushmoor Action for Peace say,
“The DPRTE Arms Fair at Farnborough Exhibition and Conference Centre brings together some of the world’s biggest arms manufacturers, research companies and component makers. Exhibitors include BAE Systems, Raytheon, Lockheed Martin, companies connected to the conflicts in Yemen, Palestine and around the world.
We are ashamed that Farnborough is hosting an Arms Fair: we want the Arms Fair to be cancelled.
We want the Exhibition Centre to adopt an Ethical Exhibition Policy to ensure that future events that take place reflect the highest moral standards.”
They have launched a petition, that can be found here!
They are in the process of organising a demonstration and vigil on 5 October, at or near Farnborough Exhibition Centre. If you would like to be involved or help organise, please contact GreaterRushmoorActionForPeace@gmail.com.
