Assemble 12 Noon, Olympia Way, W14, on Wednesday 14 April.
Sponsored by arms company Thales, and organised by Clarion Events—responsible for Defence & Security Equipment International (DSEi) the world’s largest arms fair, the Counter Terror Expo takes place between 14-15 April 2010 at Olympia, London.
Officially supported by a plethora of military, police and private security organisations, the Expo will host over 250 exhibitors including leading arms companies such as BAE Systems and Lockheed Martin, and is endorsed by state agencies such as the MoD and NATO.
Western governments and arms manufacturers make huge profits from terrorising populations around the world both by creating new conflicts and exacerbating existing ones—for example, British made F16 components were used during the bombing of Gaza in 2008 killing 400 children.
Surveillance systems will be a major focus of the expo, with companies promoting biometric and data gathering/mining technologies—technologies promoting “freedom” through ever greater control and documentation of our daily lives.
Say no to living in a climate of state and corporation induced terror.
Join Disarm DSEi, confront the counter terror expo, resist our ever encroaching surveillance society, and expose the exploitation of fear for profit.
Download the flyer or email counterterror at dsei.org with a postal address for printed copies.
If you can live with the surveillance, help us build this protest on facebook
