“Stop Fuelling War”: European Friends Bear Witness for Peace at the Eurosatory Arms Fair

In June 2018 around sixty Friends from a variety of European countries gathered in the French capital to organise events around the biennial EuroSatory arms fair.

Friends protest outside the offices of the French news agency in central Paris. The banner reads: “Peace comes from justice and development, not through weapons”

Stop Fuelling War” is a Paris-based non-profit group founded by European Quakers to protest the global arms trade.
