Companies in the south-east of England involved in the exhibiting at DESi, the world's largest weapons fair, planned for 13th-16th September, have been targeted.

Weapons Fair? Sounds like a French cheese fair with war ships. Kontron UK, Wayne Kerr (Wanker) Electronics, I-Bus UK, CP Mechanical Design, Whippendell Marine/Electric Apparatus and Finecast Foundry will find that access to their warehouses and offices have been restricted and premises decorated. These actions will have disrupted their preparations for the event, which is attended by governmental representatives from almost one third of the world's countries, including Syria, Tanzania, Turkey, the USA, India and Pakistan. To deal with the arms trade, whether providing missiles or welding services, is totally unacceptable.
