Protesters blocked a jeep on its way to an arms fair in east London on Monday of this week.

The action was against arms sales to Israel. Graffiti on the jeep, owned by Austrian firm MAN, read, “Arms tested on children”.

A masked “Tony Blair” in an orange jumpsuit chained himself to the truck.

Testimonies from families in Gaza were read from the lorry carrying the jeep.
