Last time, nonviolent protests disrupted the set-up of the fair and drew media attention to the horrific reality of DSEI. This year, let's make an even bigger impact!
The PPU is only one of the many groups involved in these protests and we're very happy to be part of a wider nonviolent movement that is challenging this appalling event.
However, we have organised a specific PPU group to welcome our members and supporters and to let our allies in other groups know that the PPU is present and supporting them.
This day marks the weekend before the DSEI arms fair opens. There will also be a PPU presence at the protests on every day of the week leading up to the arms fair (Monday 2nd - Friday 6th September). Find out more from the Stop the Arms Fair coalition, to which the Peace Pledge Union is affiliated.
If you want to join with the PPU at the Festival of Resistance, or on any of the days in the week beforehand, watch out for the Peace Pledge Union banners. Give us a shout on 020 7424 9444 or @PPUtoday if you can't find us among all the people involved.
Everybody committed to nonviolent resistance to DSEI is welcome to join with us. There is no expectation or pressure for anyone to take part in any particular kind of action.
