Wednesday 11 September, the Arab Organisation for Human Rights in the
UK, alongside Stop the War Coalition, Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament
and London Students for Yemen will hold a protest demanding that the
British Government end arms sales to Saudi Arabia and the UAE. A
delegation of representatives will hand a letter to the Prime Minister.
The British Government has sold over £5 billion of Arms to Saudi Arabia
since the Saudi-led war on Yemen began in 2015. The Court of Appeal has
ruled these sales as unlawful, as the government has repeatedly failed
to carry out the necessary investigations into the Saudi regimes use of
British weapons in the targeting of civilians.
The British government in its appeal of this ruling continues to seek
profit from the arms trade, despite it clearly violating international
In just the week before the UK will be hosting the DSEI arms fair which will welcome a large Saudi delegation.
The war on Yemen has caused what the UN describes as “the world’s worst
humanitarian crisis.” Currently the UN states that 80% of the Yemeni
population, totalling over 24 million people, are in need of immediate
humanitarian assistance and since the conflict began at least 230,000
people have died.
The Saudi-led coalition would be unable to continue its bombardment of
Yemen without British support and weapons. It is imperative that the
international community demand that the targeting of civilians, the
destruction of vital infrastructure and violations of international law
do not become normalised for the sake of economic interest.
Join us in demanding the UK government stop arming Saudi Arabia and its coalition forces.
