Read about the actions CAAT supporters have taken during Stop Week from 19-27 June.
Construction workers warn against unsafe structure
Six members of London Campaign Against Arms Trade descended on the UK Trade and Investment (UKTI) department on Monday morning dressed as construction workers to highlight the unsafe nature of the work taking place inside. 200 of CAAT’s ‘Danger: unsafe structure’ leaflets were handed out to passersby and UKTI staff.
London CAAT’s presence was particularly pertinent in light off the cuts due to be announced in the budget tomorrow. A lot of these cuts would be unnecessary if the disproportionate support given to the arms trade was redirected into more socially beneficial areas such as addressing climate change.
CAAT supporter Rhiannon Rees from South London said: 'Before the government cut spending on health and education they should cut harmful subsidies to arms exports that promote conflict and corruption’.
