Welcome to the blog of Campaign Against Arms Trade!
This blog is about campaigning against the arms trade – our thoughts and personal experiences.
Many people contribute to this blog. As well as the staff, volunteers and activists who make up Campaign Against Arms Trade, there are articles from people whose lives have been affected by the arms trade, and other campaigners who are passionately opposed to the arms trade.
We want to expose the harm that is caused by the arms trade, and challenge the government’s support for arms companies. We believe that, far from being a legitimate, respectable business, the arms trade is shameful and must be be stopped.
So what do we do about it ?
Well, we’re out and about campaigning! We blog about our passion, our enthusiasm and our ideas on campaigning against the arms trade. We want to tell you what we’ve been up to, what we’ve got planned and what’s in the news.
Let’s be realistic: campaigning can be frustrating. But it can also be inspiring and great fun. We’d like to share the ups and downs with you. And we’d like to hear from you! Do get involved and tell us your thoughts, ideas and experiences.
