Students protest over arms dealers at recruitment fairs

by Simon Hill

University authorities are braced for a wave of student protests over the presence of arms companies at careers fairs.

One recent event in Edinburgh was closed after students lay down in front of a stall run by BAE Systems.

Graduate recruitment has long been a priority for arms firms, particularly among engineering and management students. But protests are on the increase and the Campaign Against Arms Trade (CAAT) is stepping up the pressure with a new campaign.
