Weapons shipments should be blocked, arms fairs closed, blood profits protested, and the business of war made shameful and disreputable. World BEYOND War works to protest, disrupt, and reduce the arms trade.
World BEYOND War is a member of the War Industry Resisters Network, and works with organizations and coalitions around the world on this campaign, including Groups Against Arms Fairs (which we co-founded), CODE PINK, and many others.
