Campaigners against next month's arms fair in London have announced that faith groups will hold a united silent vigil on the eve of the event. Members of several faith communities from London and beyond are expected to participate.
The Campaign Against Arms Trade (CAAT) has pointed to nationwide protests against the arms industry as evidence of “public revulsion". Such feelings are expected to increase ahead of the London arms fair in September.
An arms fair taking place in London this week will be run for the last time by its current owner Reed Elsevier, which is putting it up for sale. Campaigners say they believe it may be the beginning of the end for the military exhibition.
