Edinburgh International Science Festival: stop supporting the arms trade!


We love Science!

We love seeing the amazing things science helps to create and understanding life on our planet and how to protect it. That's why it makes us sad that a company which profits from weapons which kill people across the world is sponsoring the Edinburgh Science Festival.

Weapons company, Selex, who sponsor the Edinburgh Science Festival, make drones, surveillance equipment and weapons targeting systems. Their products cause death and destruction around the world.  Selex say they sponsor the fair in order to 'inspire the potential future workforce'. Is this the future children would choose?

Science should be about improving life, not taking it away. Please ask Edinburgh Science Festival to stop supporting the arms trade.
