Come to a CAAT Campaign Day!
Join us at a CAAT Campaign Day for an action-packed day of training, discussion and planning:
- London: Saturday 28 April, 10.30am-4.30pm, University of London Union, Malet Street.
This time last year, while UK weapons were being used against civilians in Libya, David Cameron went on a tour to promote weapons sales in the Middle East. In 2011, Saudi Arabia deployed armoured vehicles to help suppress protests in Bahrain, but UK arms sales to the kingdom never even slowed.
On Saturday, we will hear from John Lubbock, advocacy officer for the Bahrain Centre for Human Rights in London, about ongoing repression in Bahrain.
Now is the time to take action to expose that This is NOT OK.
What will happen at the Campaign Days?
These four action-packed days of training, discussion and planning will make sure you have the latest information on UK weapons to repressive regimes and will explore why arms are still being sold to countries committing human rights abuses. You'll also have the chance to meet and network with inspiring campaigners from your region, find out about the arms trade in your area and plan some hard-hitting action for 2012.
We want you to shape the agenda, so please let us know what you'd like to talk about and the issues affecting campaigns in your area when you book.
Interested in coming? Please book early so that we have a good idea of numbers in advance.
Booking is free and includes lunch and refreshments. The Campaign Days cost CAAT about £10 per person so please donate towards the cost if you can.
Keep checking back, this page will be kept updated with more information in the run up to the events.
Can you help spread the word? Please contact us for leaflets and an e-flyer to help advertise the day!
