Arms trade is the modern SLAVE trade

"It is an appalling contradiction - both of the abolition of slavery and South Africa's transition to democracy - that the Africa Aerospace and Defence (AAD) 2006 arms bazaar is scheduled to be held from September 20 to 24 at Ysterplaat Air Force Base.

The sole purpose of this event is to supply armaments to kill people.

Our African continent is being devastated by the obscene consequences of an out-of-control armaments industry.

One week before the opening of AAD 2006, it would be appropriate for the city council to revoke whatever licence it has issued.

it should cancel AAD 2006 and send the merchants of death packing as being unwelcome in Cape Town. "
