What’s Ban BAE?
Ban BAE is a campaign involving disrupting and stopping arms company recruitment of higher education students. Universities are a very important site for arms companies – they visit university campuses to recruit students and spread the lie that they are part of a morally neutral, acceptable business. Companies like BAE Systems, Thales, Rolls Royce and Cobham have stalls at careers fairs, give presentations and hold individual meetings with students. Funnily enough you won’t hear death or repression mentioned once.

Here’s a map of careers fairs over the UK where arms dealers are expected to attend but it’s not conclusive! If you know of a careers fair that we’ve missed out, let us know so we can put it up on the map. Get in touch with your careers service to see who’s coming to your campus and when. Look particularly at science and engineering fairs, though arms companies recruit from all disciplines.
