TRAKNAT arms trade campaign launch 28 April 2012We launched the campaign with some street theatre on Saturday 28th April 2012 outside Santander in Twickenham in the rain.

We did get some good photos, and another 120 petition signatures, which have now dried out completely.

As planned, the event featured one of us dressed as Vince Cable signing export licences, after first asking the arms dealer for assurance that the weapons will not be used for human rights abuses, then the weapons being passed on from arms dealer to dictator.
