ICAN UK campaigners blockade London Arms Fair

Colleagues at ICAN UK promoted the report and joined hundreds of protesters from Campaign Against the Arms Trade (CAAT) and other groups which form the Stop the Arms Fair coalition to help block both entrances to the DSEI London arms fair last weekend.

Research for the Don’t Bank on the Bomb report shows that well-known British financial institutions such as Barclays, Lloyds Banking Group and RBS are investing heavily in companies that produce nuclear weapons and that are sponsoring the DSEI arms fair.

The messages were clear: Don’t Bank on the Bomb and Ban Nuclear Weapons Now! The action by ICAN UK also shows how the Don’t Bank on the Bomb report can be a good tool to help campaigners in their actions against nuclear weapons.
