This Thursday 24th April the two international arms companies we are privately prosecuting – Tianjin MyWay and Magforce – will face their first hearing, accused of promoting illegal torture weapons (stun batons, stun guns and fetters) at last year’s DSEi arms fair.

Various illegal weapons have been discovered at every DSEi arms fair since 2005, including electro-shock weapons, weighted fetters, cluster munitions and anti-personnel landmines. The state (which heavily subsidises and jointly hosts the arms fair) has so far made no effective intervention. Please join us (at the same court we ourselves were due to stand trial in for disrupting last year’s arms fair) as we take this rare opportunity to hold the arms companies accountable for their actions.

We are not merely opposed to ‘illegal’ weapons at the arms fair, we are against the arms fair full stop and everything it represents: the corruption, the human misery, and the profiteering by a narrow elite at the expense of people and planet. We see this private prosecution as a further step towards meeting our objective of discrediting and then stopping the DSEI arms fair for good.
