Take Action

websiteTo take action you can:

1. Come along to our next occupation: Occupy The Arms Fair 7th-12th September

Stop The Arms Fair Events: Stop The Arms Fair Programme Sept 1st-15th .

In September, the world’s largest arms fair is taking place in London. Weapons and equipment specifically designed to inflict suffering, pain, injury and death will be bought and sold in London Docklands.

Many of these weapons will be sold to countries on the UK’s list of human rights abusers, to fight wars that take a huge toll on civilian populations, causing famine, starvation and poverty.

Occupy Democracy is supporting Stop The Arms Fair, Campaign Against The Arms Trade and a broad coalition of protest groups to occupy, to obstruct, hinder and ultimately, to stop the arms fair from taking place.

Stop The Arms Fair have organised an exciting calendar of events for the week of action:

Monday 7 September: Stop Arming Israel
Tuesday 8 September: No Faith in War
Wednesday 9 September: Stop the Arms Fair: Reclaim the Power
Thursday 10 September: Study War no More
Friday 11 September: Freedom of Movement for People not Weapons
Saturday 12 September: Big Day of Action!

Join Occupy the Arms Fair, from Monday 7th to Saturday 12th September where we’ll mount a 24 hour presence at the gates of the Excel exhibition centre. Bring tents, warm clothing, food, good vibes and creative ideas to occupy together for a more peaceful world.

Provisionally, the site of the occupation will be on the roundabout joining Royal Albert Way and Sandstone Lane on the eastern side of ExCeL London. More details to be confirmed nearer the time.

We didnt vote for endless war!

Join us to fight for a Real Democracy Now!

All occupations are alcohol-free, safe spaces and any major decisions will be achieved through consensus.
