Stop the weapons trade fair

The sleepy little city of Adelaide comes alive in late November for all the wrong reasons.  The international weapons trade fair is coming to town, and the citizens of Adelaide are pretty upset about it.

South Australia has been gaining popularity as the 'defence state' thanks to a few quiet defence contracts coming our way.  So it was logical that the decidedly unpopular weapons trade fair would come knocking.

But don't worry, there are dozens of great minds on the case organising a rather large protest and blockade for the trade fair site - the Adelaide Convention Centre - including some big puppets, moving bands, dance groups & even a large box wall of art!
