Heckler & Koch
As you probably know, our demo against Nottingham-based arms manufacturer Heckler & Koch went very well. You can read a full report on our website. The primary focus of the Disarm DSEi campaign remains the London arms fair.
However, a campaign against Heckler & Koch in Nottingham has been proposed, inspired by the long-running and effective Smash EDO campaign in Brighton. Please let me know if you would be interested in supporting such a campaign.
The police officers you see photographing everyone at demos are the Forward Intelligence Team and their purpose is to intimidate dissenters as much as it is to record them. Fed up with constant intrusive surveillance, activists from Disarm DSEi recently set up FIT Watch – a movement aimed at turning the tables on the FIT.

Whenever possible Veggies feature the publications of the Movement for Compassionate Living, which we print and distribute to promote simple living and vegan self-reliance as a remedy to the exploitation of humans, animals and the Earth.
We also support our nominated charity, Vegfam, ‘Feeding the hungry without exploiting animals’. If you can help us with either of these projects at this event, whilst we are busy with Veggies catering, please email email@example.com.
