Activists ended a week of protests against arms sales to Israel last Saturday.

The action targeted the DSEI arms fair at the Excel centre in east London.

The action involved many groups including the Campaign Against the Arms Trade, Palestine Solidarity Campaign, Stop the War Coalition and War on Want.

A peace camp in east London lasted all week and protests held up a number of arms deliveries.

It highlighted the appalling inhumanity of the trade in weapons of war—and the complicity of Britain’s government.

More than one thousand firms were involved in the arms fair.
