Stop Fuelling War is a French association set up in 2017 whose aim is to raise awareness about the French arms trade, and to campaign against its existence. In particular, we focus on the Paris-based arms fair Eurosatory. We also offer peacebuilding alternatives to military responses. We are building on 20 years of Quaker witness outside Eurosatory and are supported by a network of French and European peace or anti-militarist groups. Our goal is to enable a transformation of the arms industry by redirecting resources focussed on producing weapons towards peacebuilding and conflict transformation. We use Quaker approaches and welcome the participation of people of all faiths and of none.

The guiding principles are peace, justice, equality, integrity, respect for the environment, and simplicity. We treat the participants at the arms fair with respect, acknowledging that we all need security and employment.
