About 70 people arrested in UK during protests against major arms fair


Around 70 people have been arrested during week-long protests in London aimed at stopping Europe's biggest arms fair, Andrew Smith, a spokesman for the London-based Campaign Against Arms Trade (CAAT), told Sputnik on Saturday, APA reports quoting Sputnik.

 

The protesters rallied against the biennial Defence and Security Equipment International (DSEI) fair that is set for next week.

 

"The police have been very arrest-happy so far. They're pouring massive resources into stopping this peaceful protest, which is significantly concerning considering all we're doing is opposing an event where weapons are being sold to human rights abusing governments," Smith said.
