Week of Action Against DSEI Arms Fair

6 September @ 8:00 am - 16 September @ 5:00 pm

Get ready to join in the resistance to DSEI 2021.

Every two years, the global arms trade comes to London. DSEI, one of the world’s largest arms fairs, returns to London’s Docklands this September.

This is where those who profit from war, repression and injustice do business. This is where we can stop them.

1,700+ arms companies plan to set up shop, marketing their lethal wares to an expected 36,000+ attendees from around the world. This year they will be joined by companies selling surveillance equipment, drones and other tools of repression to police and state agencies, as Counter Terror Expo takes place alongside DSEI.

Arms fair organisers Clarion hope that DSEI will mark the arms industry’s “commitment to a return to live events”. A full programme of resistance is planned!

Each day of the week of action will be themed, with talks, music, art, workshops, actions and more. Current plans include days on Palestine Solidarity, Climate Justice, Migration and Borders and a Festival of Resistance. There will be food, welfare support and a space to pop your tent – as well as actions that you can take locally or from home – so get involved and join the week of action to #StopDSEI from 6th to 16th September 2021!
