BAE Systems – the UK’s largest arms manufactures – was the first stop on what would be a fast-paced journey across Central London highlighting the capital’s ties to the global arms trade. With scores of protestors arrested during Tuesday’s Stop G8 demos, the police presence was a heavy one. Demonstrators from a coalition of anti-capitalists groups explained why the arms firms provoked their anger.
