We must end UK complicity in the war in Yemen. Thousands of people have been killed by five years of bombing in Yemen, many more by hunger and disease. Now Yemen is facing the dual threat of cholera and COVID-19 with a health system shattered by war.
Shamefully, UK-made fighter jets, bombs and missiles have played a central role in this destruction. The UK government has continued to support the supply of weapons to the Saudi-led coalition, even as it bombed schools, hospitals and food supplies.
In June 2019 the Court of Appeal ruled that UK arms sales to Saudi Arabia for use in Yemen were unlawful – but the government is doing all it can to keep the arms sales flowing and resumed new arms sales on 7 July 2020.
Please stand with us to end these arms sales once and for all.
The UK should never have supplied weapons to Saudi Arabia, or to the war in Yemen. Stop the arms sales, now.
