Newham Opposition to War and Racism Launches Statement Against Arms Fair

Newham Opposition to War and Racism, in conjunction with East London Against the Arms Fair and Campaign Against Arms Trade, is launching a statement calling for the widest public support from residents and organisations in Newham to ensure that this year's DSEi arms fair will be the last.

The NOWAR network organised a public meeting against the DSEi arms fair in September, which brought together a spectrum of groups with very different tactics for opposing the presence of the arms trade in Newham. The statement adopts a similar approach, aiming to be inclusive enough for all those who reject both the hosting of an arms fair in the borough and the
impact of the arms industry in increasing the likelihood of armed conflict and prolonging conflicts once they begin.

To show our support, Radical Activist Newham is hosting a version of the statement allowing people to sign up online.
