Paris, 4th June 2018 :
A few days before the opening of Eurosatory, the world's biggest international land and aerial defence and security fair which will be held from 11th to 15th June 2018 in Paris. Eurosatory will welcome hundreds of arms dealers and official delegations, including countries currently under an arms embargo or mired in controversies. The aim of the fair is to present the latest innovations in military equipment. The organisation, Stop Fuelling War, together with other peace movements and NGOs, is opposed to this event and is underlining the dramatic impact that arms sales have on peace and human rights. France's arms exports to war-torn countries, notably the Yemen, is facing intense criticism.

Controversial arms dealers and repressive regimes are coming next week to Eurosatory. pdf icon 150x150 << download this release

Paris, 7 June 2018 – Next Monday will see the opening of Eurosatory, the world's largest land and aerial weapons fair. In 2016, 1571 exhibitors came to Paris, among them very controversial companies notorious for their weapons sales to repressive regimes or countries already at war. This year, the event will again welcome big defence names linked by civil society to murderous conflicts. Eurosatory presents itself as an exceptional opportunity to meet the industrialists of air and land defence and security. These more or less household names come to promote the latest trends and innovative technologies in arms and war supplies : tanks, combat helicopters, firearms, knives, grenades, missiles ....
