In Nottingham, Shut Down H&K picket their local arms company Heckler & Koch every month. Here they report on leafleting as people arrived at a conference at the church next door to the arms company’s industrial unit on Wed 26th September.
It was one of the best and most successful pickets so far with many, many leaflets given out to people attending the conference. Almost every car stopped to take a leaflet or two. As is usually the case when people learn of the filthy business conducted by Heckler & Koch on this ‘quiet little industrial estate’, most were clearly disturbed to find out.
DSEI, one of the world’s biggest arms fairs, is scheduled to return to London’s docklands in September 2013. One year before it plans to open its doors, Stop the Arms Fair pledges to resist the arms fair and is calling for a massive day of action on 10 September 2013 if the fair goes ahead.
