The peace blockade of the weapons expo has been a great success today. We are thrilled to have had so many people to come and resist this war profiteers’ meeting. Thank you to everyone who was part of the day.

Amazing courageous activists put themselves in the way of the war business to stop it.

We know we cannot allow the world to continue on as it is: trillions of dollars are being spent making weapons. Millions of people have fled their homes from ongoing wars. Our society is paying for weapons while our health system is failing, our people are homeless and our children live in poverty. The only people benefiting from this are the weapons dealers: they have a financial interest in starting and prolonging wars.

We finished off the blockade with a dance party.We’ll be back tomorrow at the Weapons Expo with our Wall of Noise protest. Please join us with your favourite noise device.
