End "arms control by embarrassment"
As a Parliamentary Committee criticises UK arms exports, CAAT condemns 'arms control by embarrassment'. Why should it take a crisis before the government stops promoting and supporting arms sales to tyrants? Time and again we see the same tired excuses from government: we urgently need a fundamental revaluation of the UK's approach to arms sales.
End military ties with Israel
The UK sells arms to Israel and spends millions on Israeli weapons. As Israel escalates its offensive against Gaza, CAAT calls for an embargo on all arms sales and military collaboration with Israel. Take action.
Arms dealers out of the Science Museum
The Science Museum hosted a networking event for Farnborough International, where weapons sales are promoted to human rights abusers.
Please sign the petition and ask the Museum to support science which is about improving life, not taking it away.
Arming All Sides

It draws parallels with the arms trade today, and offers opportunities for action against the arms trade. Find out more at armingallsides.org.uk.
Deception in High Places
Deception in High Places by Nicholas Gilby is available now. In his authoritative new book Gilby lifts the lid on the role of bribery and corruption in the UK arms trade. Based on painstaking research in government archives, collections of private and court papers and documents won by the author in a landmark Freedom of Information Tribunal against the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, the book illuminates a shadow world of bribery and elite enrichment.
