COPEX: Tuesday 30th October – Thursday 1st November 2001
The old enemy is back on the agenda – COPEX. CAAT has managed to budget and raise the energy once again to have a presence at this year’s COPEX. Many supporters may have been surprised to see our exclusion of COPEX from last year’s plans but this was only a short term consolidation of energy levels and finances.
The venue is once again Sandown Race course and last year local campaign groups and affinity groups co-ordinated an effective and brilliant protest. Let us rebuild that level of protest that COPEX generated in past years.
COPEX (Contingency Operations & Procurement Exhibition) was exposed as the market place for instruments of torture (electro-shock batons) in the past. The name COPEX has to peace activists become synonymous with some of the murkier dealsand operations in the arms and procurement industry.
Pencil the dates in your diary and join the mailing contact list to keep informed of current plans by writing to COPEX Demo at the office address or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
HELP US SHUT DOWN COPEX!
