On 27th April, members of London Campaign Against Arms Trade (CAAT) will be protesting outside Lockheed Martin’s Offices on Lower Regent Street, London.
Lockheed Martin produces Hellfire Missiles that have been used by the Saudi-led coalition in Yemen.
It produces the F-16 fighter jet, which the Saudi-led coalition has been used in the destruction.
In September Lockheed Martin will have a big presence at the event. It work will be aided by the UK government’s Defence and Security Organisation, a taxpayer-funded body that will be helping to help organise the Fair.
London CAAT member Ian Pocock said: “As the world’s largest arms company, Lockheed Martin is responsible for untold harm and profits from conflict around the world. The bombing of Yemen has created a humanitarian catastrophe and Lockheed has profited every step of the way.
“They will be among those pushing their deadly wares on anyone who will buy them at the DSEI arms fair in a few months time. DSEI is a stain on the UK’s human rights record and should not be darkening our shores ever again.”
