Quaker Roots

Refusal to fight with weapons is not surrender.



Positive peaceful action.
An overview of the organisation/group:

Quaker Roots is a community of Friends building a creative, vibrant and radical Quaker response to the Defence and Security Equipment International (DSEI) arms fair. Taking place in east London every two years, DSEI is a huge trade show bringing together 1,500 arms companies with representatives from militaries from around the world. Some of the world’s largest companies market tanks, planes, drones, rifles, ammunition, surveillance technology, training and a huge array of other weapons. In witnessing our testimony to peace, Friends have been driven to join the movement of resistance to this arms fair, which brings global human rights violations to our doorstep. Arms fairs like DSEI are a key root cause of the violence and injustice around the world. Quakers have been involved in action against DSEI for many years. Quaker Roots is planning to build an unprecedented Quaker presence at the 2019 fair, standing together against DSEI and the global arms trade.
