Action at Delegate’s Dinner, Tuesday 20th July, 6:30pm, Grosvenor House
Hotel, 86-90 Park Lane, London (nearest station Marble Arch or Hyde Park Corner).
Farnborough Airshow Direct Action Day, Sunday 25th July – 12
onwards, follow signs from Farnborough station to public entrance or get
shuttle bus organised by the airshow to the public entrance.
Farnborough International 2004 (July 19-25) in Hampshire is the most
important arms fair this year. Not only is it the battleground for the sale
of military aircraft and associated weapons systems but for the public
acceptance of them too. At the last Farnborough in 2002 military and
civilian contracts totalling over $9 billion were announced with
exhibitors including murdering bastards such as BAE Systems,
Lockheed Martin, Rolls-Royce and Boeing queuing up to sell their latest
weapons systems.

As usual with these events one of the places where contacts are made
and established is at the delegate’s swanky dinner. The dinner,
described as “the social event of the Airshow week” will be held
in the “splendour of the Great Room at the Grosvenor House
Hotel”. A presentation of a sword will also be made for a
“significant contribution towards Anglo-American aerospace
cooperation” and will be presented to Lord Robertson (NATO
Secretary General). Their website promises “an exciting and
entertaining evening”, let’s make sure we provide one!

However there is also another side to Farnborough, that of fun days out
for all the family with the weekend public days. We are therefore calling
a day of direct action on one of these family days to show that
Farnborough is primarily an arms fair and also to state that watching the
latest fighter jets is not family entertainment.

There is the option of buying tickets for the public event for £20 –
see www.farnborough.com for details.

International 2004, Duxbury House, 60 Petty France, London SW1H
