New arms trade map includes Notts companies and demos

Campaign Against Arms Trade has produced a map of the arms trade in the UK.  The aim of the project is to map the whole UK arms trade, allowing people to find where their local arms companies are and take action against them.  Currently the map only shows companies that exhibited at the latest DSEi arms fair but more companies will be added in the coming months.

At the moment there are eight Nottinghamshire-based companies on the map, including Infrared Security Solutions and Heckler & Koch.  Notts Anti-Militarism’s own Map of Militarism shows a few more arms companies in the area, but the CAAT map is a collaborative project, and people are encouraged to submit information so that the map grows over time.

As well as showing arms companies, CAAT’s map shows demonstrations.  It currently includes information on two protests against Heckler & Koch – the regular monthly picket which will take place on Monday August 13th, and a bike tour in which young Christian activists from SPEAK will ride from RAF Waddington to Heckler & Koch on Saturday August 11th.

The map is still under development.  It should soon be possible to add photos of companies and demonstrations to the map.  If you would like to add a company or a demonstration to the map, you can do so via the CAAT website.
