In case you don't know DESO (Defence Export Services Organisation) is a Government Department with 500 civil servants promoting arms sales around the world ; it's a freebie for Arms Companies and puts them at the heart of Government. On this day we formed a human chain around the Department, did street polling and lobbied our mp's to SHUT DESO!
