Week 35 in #wapenhandel25tweets

(Gaarne 'liken' of delen als je het nuttig of interessant vindt.)

Er is een periode begonnen dat een groot deel van het wapenhandelnieuws gemaakt zal worden door activisten die protesteren tegen de DSEI wapenbeurs in Londen. Het protest wordt ieder jaar groter. Kleurrijk, creatief, radicaal, breed en onthullend. Wapenhandel is sowieso een onderwerp in het VK. DSEI laat zien dat het ernst is.
