The events in Afghanistan show that more bombs, rifles or tanks don’t bring real security for women. We say NO to the DSEI arms fair, which will be held at the London EXCEL centre in September. Write to your MP with your concerns about the UKs involvement in the arms trade.

"When we ally ourselves with countries such as Saudi Arabia, our moral credibility to speak about human rights is fundamentally undermined. We need a longer-term approach, including stopping arms sales to oppressive regimes that do not abide by international law". @CarolineLucas twitter.com/CarolineLucas/…
