Members and supporters of the Peace Pledge Union will gather to remember people of all nationalities who have died and suffered in wars. Remembering victims of war leads us to resist war and the arms trade today.
A selection of the names of people of many nationalities who have died in war in the last twenty years will be read out. They include many people killeed by the regimes, forces and arms companies taking part in the DSEI arms fair. More people will dies as a result of deals done at DSEI.
A wreath of white poppies will be laid at the gates to the arms fair to remember all victims of war and the arms trade. All are welcome to join in this remembrance event.
This ceremony takes place on the opening day of the arms fair, as the Tank the Arms Fair day of action begins.
