Vigil at Heckler and Koch

with Sr. Katrina Alton
DATE: Thursday APRIL 11TH 
TIME: 4:45 pm
PLACE: Gregory Street Tram Stop, Nottingham NG7 2PX 

We would like to see an end to the arms trade and the death and suffering it brings, so we’re starting at home with this company here in Nottingham.

Heckler & Koch is a German-based weapons company which operates in the UK under the name NSAF Ltd, right here in Nottingham (Easter Park, Lenton Lane).

It describes itself as a “world-wide leading company in small arms production” and has been supplying weapons across the globe for the past 60 years, including pistols, assault rifles, submachine guns and sniper rifles. It currently manufactures the British Army’s primary assault rifle – the SA80.

In the run up to and during the Arab Spring it applied for UK arms export licences to Bahrain, Qatar, UAE and Oman.
