"Make this arms fair the last", urge campaigners
Protesters against last week's arms fair at the Excel have celebrated a week of action against the event.
And the group, Campaign Against Arms Trade, has urged the Government to drop its support for the fair, held in east London every two years.
Action included blocking the streets towards the exhibition centre and protesting to attendees at the DLR and London City Airport.
They also attended charity dinners and receptions at the Troxy in Limehouse and the Cutty Sark at Greenwich.
A spokeswoman for CAAT said the protests had a real impact on the Defence Security and Equipment International (DSEi) event, which receives financial backing from the Government.
"Our actions beforehand delayed setting up exhibits and direct action throughout the week brought our message to arms dealers - we don't want you here and we don't want an arms fair in London," she said.
"It is clear that the British public dislikes and distrusts the arms industry and, especially, does not want to see the UK exporting arms to dictatorships who use these arms on their own people when they ask for democratic rights.
"We urge an end to all government support for the arms industry, including for arms fairs. We want this DSEi to be the last."
Meanwhile, DSEi says the event was a success with over 30,000 people attending - the highest figure in the event's history.
The four day exhibition also received the backing of London Mayor Boris Johnson.
However, two companies, Tianjin Myway International Trading Co and Magforce International, were ejected from the event for a "compliance breach", according to a DSEi statement.
Green Party MP Caroline Lucas said the companies were promoting the handheld projectile electric shock weapons, leg cuffs and stun batons.
