After the First World War many believed the arms trade to be a primary cause of war. The unprecedented scale of death and destruction wrought by modern weaponry led a majority of people to support disarmament and international conciliation. The Arming All Sides project questions what role the arms trade played before, during and after the war, what opposition was mounted to the trade and how the war affected what people thought about making and selling armaments. Join us to explore how the arms trade worked at the time of WW1, and to find out about modern opportunities for action against the arms trade.
Arming All Sides is a joint project between Campaign Against Arms Trade and On the Record. Find out more at armingallsides.on-the-record.org.uk. To get in contact, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
