War is big business. The international arms trade is worth hundreds of billions, and arms deals brokered by the rich and the powerful continue to extend human misery around the world.
The UK is the world’s second largest arms exporter in the world, fuelling conflicts like the war in Yemen which has claimed a quarter of a million lives to date.
We must come together across borders and backgrounds to fight back against this economy of war and suffering, and demand real security for all.
The Peace and Justice Project is proud to support Egypt Watch’s upcoming event: Selling Death: Why the International Arms Trade Must be Controlled, an international conference that aims to shed light on the horrific abuses of the arms trade, and help build a movement to fight back.
Join the event on Saturday July 17th, 2021, at 4pm London time, and sign up now.
