Why We Must Stop Fuelling War

The largest land and land/air arms fair in the world, Eurosatory, scheduled for June 8 – 12 2020 in Paris is cancelled!
With Covid-19, we can now all see that the threats facing humanity - health crises, degradation of the environment, conflicts over resources, rampant inequality - CAN'T be solved by highly expensive weaponry. Rather, governments should redirect resources to enable scientists and researchers to find solutions to protect the lives, health and livelihoods of all.

Open Editorial

Please find here our op-ed from 11th June 2020 on why Eurosatory should be cancelled and investments should be turned towards healthcare and the climate emergency:

Why eurosatory should be closed for good - and for the good of the world.

Oped english


However, we know that arms deals are still being agreed behind closed doors and ‘defence’ budgets increase.
We see that so many events in 2020 wild fires, Covid 19, flooding, locusts and various disasters caused by the climate emergency cannot be solved by the military industrial complex and excesses of the arms industries. While recognising the role that emergency services play, including the army, we need to take this opportunity to REWRITE OUR FUTURE.

Transform Eurosatory into a place to showcase peacebuilding or cancel it forever!
