WRITE TO YOUR MP:
STOP UK ARMS SALES FUELLING SUFFERING IN YEMEN
Right now, the lives of millions of men, women and children in Yemen are at risk in what has become the world’s biggest humanitarian crisis.
Brutal conflict in Yemen has already claimed thousands of lives. And with homes, hospitals, schools and vital infrastructure destroyed, millions of men, women and children now face starvation. More than 2,000 people have died from cholera and more than 600,000 more are believed to have contracted the disease. Nearly 16 million people don’t have clean water and sanitation.
All sides in this brutal and bloody war have violated International Humanitarian Law. Yet the UK Government continues to allow British companies to sell arms to Saudi Arabia, who are leading the airstrikes in Yemen.
Pressure is mounting. Celebrity artists, authors and actors have issued an open letter calling for an end to suffering in Yemen, and now we need you to take action.
Ask your MP to write to Prime Minister Theresa May and demand that this shameful and deadly trading stops.
All sides in this war must stop the destruction and the UK government must use its influence to help make this happen – and put Yemen on the path to peace.
Please don’t wait. Help save the lives of mothers, fathers, daughters, sons – send your message now.
