Last week the biggest arms fair in the world came to London and we felt obligated to be there to say that the way of weapons is a dead end. There is another way, a way of peace, that Jesus teaches. The arms fair has a history of breaking what minimal rules there are and it turns out this year was no different. Illegal torture equipment was found in the exhibition. Some us took part in a non violent blockade of one of the entrances, to say that we cannot stand by while this illegal and immoral trade continues. There are some photos here and over the coming weeks we ill keep posting reflections as the trial for “aggravated trespass” gets under way.
