Send arms dealers to the Tower

Town/City:

Take part in a spooky action at the arms dealers’ ghoulish dinner. High-level arms dealers and arms dealing civil servants are meeting at the Tower of London for a £200-a-head dinner to “Raise [their] profile” and “forge and strengthen strategic alliances”.
They’ve chosen a ghoulish location for their dinner, so let’s haunt them as they arrive! Feel free to come in the most ghoulish costume you can find and help spread the word.

BAE's on the run! Help us to stage a protest against its Annual Meeting this 8th May at Farnborough!

BAE sponsoring the flowers at Queens roundabout in Farnborough
Wed, 08/05/2013 - 08:15
Town/City: 
Farnborough

BAE Systems is on the run but we're hot on its heels.

Arms company BAE Systems would rather its shareholders weren't reminded where their profits actually come from. It is so keen to whitewash its image, that it has moved its Annual General Meeting from a prestigious venue in Westminster back to home turf in Farnborough.

They want to hide. So it's up to us to make sure they can't.
