Resist the Three Counties Arms Fair - Malvern

PPU members and allies will be joining local people in Worcestershire in protesting against the Three Counties "Defence and Security" Exhibition.

The Three Counties Arms Fair is sponsored by BAE Systems and perpetuates the sale of weapons and other military equipment. Holding it at the popular Three Counties Showground - home of agricultral shows and flower exhibitions - helps to normalise militarism.

Thankfully, many local people are resisting! The Peace Pledge Union is pleased to support Malvern Individuals for Peace (MIP) and the Three Counties Campaign Against Arms Trade (part of the Campaign Against Arms Trade nationally) in challenging the fair.

Several protests are planned on the day:

9.30 - 10.30am: Demonstration in the lay-by opposite the Brown Gate, Three Counties Showground

2.00 - 3.00: Vigil at Barnards Green, Malvern, including the Stroud Red Band

3.00 - 5.00: Demonstration in the lay-by opposite the Brown Gate, Three Counties Showground

More information can be obtained from threecountiescaat@gmail.com, although we will be posting more details on here closer to the time.

If coming by train: remember to travel to Great Malvern (not Malvern Link)!
