London Campaign Against Arms Trade

 

What is London CAAT?

London, our home, is the global hub of the arms trade and London CAAT was established in late 2006 to peacefully protest against the local elements of this trade in death.

The members agreed that it was important to raise the awareness of Londoners that the arms trade is widespread throughout our city. London CAAT is an active group and we carry out many actions in the city, for example walking tours of the arms companies situated in London and protests outside events related to the arms trade.

We are a friendly group of determined people, some getting involved for the first time, who are committed to making a difference in our hometown. We meet on the third Tuesday of each month at 6.30pm in the CAAT office (Unit 4, 5-7 Wells Terrace, Finsbury Park N4 3JU) and we welcome any new members.

If you would like to join our mailing list, please contact us by email:
