About us

This site has been set up by Campaign Against Arms Trade to hold BAE to account at its annual AGM and beyond.

CAAT works for the reduction and ultimate abolition of the international arms trade, together with progressive demilitarisation within arms-producing countries.

CAAT is a network of people based in the UK who recognise that the arms trade severely undermines human rights, security and economic development at global, regional, national and local levels. CAAT also understands that government decisions are unduly influenced by arms companies. In seeking to end this trade, CAAT’s priorities are to:

  • end all government political and financial support for arms exports;
  • end exports to oppressive regimes, countries involved in armed conflict or in regions of tension and countries whose social welfare is threatened by military spending;
  • promote policies to fully orientate the UK economy towards civil production.

CAAT supports the promotion of peace, justice and democratic values, and the prevention and resolution of conflicts by peaceful means. CAAT considers that high military spending is unacceptable and only reinforces a militaristic approach to problems. CAAT is committed to nonviolence in all its work.
