  • There’s a massive arms fair coming to London. And these people want to make sure you notice

The proceeds from the sale of Civilian Drone Strike, which shows a trio of Predator drones bombing a child's picture of a house, will be split between Reprieve, a human rights charity, and Campaign Against Arms Trade, a group seeking to abolish the worldwide arms trade.

It was sold for £205,000 at an exhibition set up to oppose an arms fair taking place in east London.

The money raised will be split between two organisations - Campaign Against Arms Trade, which seeks to abolish the worldwide arms trade, and Reprieve, which fights for human rights.

Andrew Smith from CAAT said the money donated by Banksy would be used "to ensure we mobilise even more people against the next arms fair, so that we can stop it from happening".

Certainly, Gregorius didn't look like the answer in his first season with the Yankees , hitting.265 with nine home runs in 2015. Errors by first baseman Chris Davis and second baseman Jonathan Schoop led to three unearned runs.


The exhibition was being held alongside the world's largest arms fair, the Defence and Security Equipment International (DSEI), to highlight the inhumanity of the arms trade.

Banksy, an anonymous street artist, is famed for his anti-war, anti-capitalism or anti-establishment artworks.

He added: "It's time to shut it down for good".

In his opening address, International Trade Secretary Liam Fox emphasised the importance of the defence industry to the United Kingdom economy, with an annual turnover of £35 billion a year ago.
