In Paris, activists from across Europe joined with French protesters to take action against the Eurosatory arms fair, a biannual event that in 2018 saw over 1,700 arms companies exhibit their products to 57,000 individuals from over 150 countries, including military delegations from across the world. Throughout the week, protesters held vigils and die-ins immediately outside the fair, regularly being moved by police and security guards, and disrupting visitors entering the fair. Read more about the actions here.

To support the resistance and protests, War Resisters' International published a short guide to some of the companies present at the fair. The guide covered ten of the companies attending the fair, the weapons they produced, the impact they had around the world, and the international networks that resisted these companies. You can view this guide (in French) here.
