STOP ARMING ISRAEL Occupy The Arms Fair [meme]

OTAF2017_fedbookbanner

The world’s largest arms fair, DSEI have set up shop at London’s Excel centre every two years since 2001. Deals are struck at DSEI which destroy the lives of entire civilian populations. The UK Government exports weapons to 22 out of 30 countries on their own human rights watchlist.

Stop Arming Israel

Trading arms with Israel makes the UK complicit in Israel’s continuing violations of human rights and international law. The Israeli assault on Gaza in July-August 2014 killed 2,205 Palestinians (including 521 children). This was just one example of Israel’s ongoing acts of violence against the Palestinian people, however UK-made weapons and military technologies continue to be sold to and used by Israeli forces.

The Watchkeeper Surveillance Drone has been developed under a £1 billion joint venture contract, awarded by the Ministry of Defence to Thales UK and Israel’s Elbit Systems. This allows the UK military to benefit from weapons that have been ‘field tested’ on the occupied Palestinian people.

Another world is possible.

The Asia-Pacific Defence and Security Exhibition (APDSE), the Australian equivalent of the British Defence and Security International (DSEI), has been scuppered three times, in 1991, 1986 and 2008.

Let’s make 2017 the year we finally turn this brutal industry the way of sustainable peace. Join Occupy The Arms Fair‘s direct action camp to stop the DSEI arms fair.

The Gaza Strip is under Israeli air, land and naval attack. At least 30 strikes have been carried out. Tanks fired several shells, 5 people injured so far. The ongoing attacks causing panic amongst Gaza residents, as drones hover the sky. Tonight’s attacks are the fiercest since the end of the last onslaught on Gaza in Aug 2014.

Israeli army officials justified this attack in response to a projectile fired from Gaza and landed in Sderot settlement.
