AFCEA Arms Fair Disrupted

Squall Download 2, Dec-1999/Jan-2000, pg. 21.

Anti-arms trade campaigners severely disrupt the Armed Forces Communication & Electronics Association (AFCEA) arms fair at the Renaissance Hotel, London Heathrow from the 27th - 29th October 1999. The exhibition deemed “politically and ethically undesirable in the European Union” by the Belgian parliament, played host to human rights abusing companies including BAe and Racal Communications, and torturing states such as Turkey.
