Stop arming Saudi Arabia protest

Saturday 3 February 14.00-18.00

Embassy of Saudi Arabia, 30 Charles Street, London W1J 5DZ

As Saudi Arabia continues to decimate Yemen, it is more important than ever to take action against their devastating assault on one of the poorest countries in the world. With that in mind, we will be outside the Saudi Arabian embassy on Saturday February 3rd to say no to this aggression and no to UK arms sales to Saudi. We will be there with placards, leaflets and the visual odd prop or two!

The Saudi regime continued to bomb Yemen over the Christmas period, killing 68 civilians in one day (https://www.theguardian.com/world/2017/dec/28/saudi-led-airstrikes-yemen-war-united-nations). One third of their air raids have hit non-military sites (https://theferret.scot/yemen-one-third-air-raids-hit-civilian-areas/), destroying hospitals schools and homes. As the conflict passes the 1000 day mark, the UK is complicit in this destruction and slaughter through the weapons they sell to Saudi, including £1.1bn in 2017 alone (https://www.theguardian.com/world/2017/oct/24/uk-sales-of-arms-and-military-equipment-to-saudi-arabia-2017). This must be resisted and the call for the suspension of all UK arms sales to Saudi Arabia must be sent loud and clear.

Please join us to make sure this message is heard
