This is not a regular event

Join us for a planning meeting to share stories of policing, detention and how the UK is exporting state repression ahead of the 'Security and Policing' arms trade event.
What is is: In March 2016 the Home Office and the arms industry trade body ADS, are organising “Security and Policing 2016”. They are offering a “discreet environment” for 400 companies who supply police, prisons and the Ministry of Defence to exhibit “the latest developments in the UK security market”. The government’s arms sales unit, UKTI DSO, is responsible for inviting international delegations. Last year, visitors browsed the stands of major weapons manufacturers such as BAE Systems and Heckler & Koch, and surveillance companies such as Gamma Group and The Hacking Team.
Come along to share stories and plan how we can work together to best take action against police militarisation and state repression.
