Thousands of protesters will try to stop one of the
world's biggest arms fairs this autumn. The Defence
Systems Equipment International (DSEi) death bazaar
is due to start in Docklands on Saturday 6th
September. Arms buyers from all over the world are
expected to visit the Excel Centre, many of them from
states on the Amnesty International list of human
rights' abusers. Among other things orders will be
placed for guns, bombs, military planes, small arms,
mines and tanks.

But anti-militarists from direct action group DISARM
DSEi say they aren't prepared to allow the killers to
shop in secret. "The arms trade, of which DSEi 2003 is
an important part, is an international political
business made up of multinational companies which
kill and maim for profit", the group says.

The last DSEi began on September 11th 2001,
coinciding with the attacks on New York and
Washington. But the event continued, allowing buyers
from America, Israel and fourteen Arab states to
continue shopping side by side.

Although demonstrations will continue for the whole
of the week in which the fair is held, there will be a
Day of Direct Action on 10th September. Two main
actions are planned, helped by the site's two mile long
perimeter. This takes in roads, railway stations, the
docks and the City Airport.

To get involved contact DISARM DSEi, Box 8, 84b
Whitechapel High Street, London E1 7QX. Visit
