Thames Magistrates’ Court, London E3 4DJ November 4, 2013
Solidarity demonstration in their support of protesters arrested for taking action against the DSEI (Defence Systems & Equipment International Exhibition) international arms fair in London.
Supporters include Caroline Lucas MP, Michael Mansfield QC, Mark Thomas, and over 30 civil society organisations. The campaigners were arrested after putting their bodies in the way of military equipment entering the DSEi arms fair as it set up for business in London in September 2013. They will use their court appearances next week to highlight the real wrong: an arms fair fuelling conflict, repression and human rights abuse.
