* Bring a candle to light for Yemen *
Saudi-led airstrikes and its naval blockade on Yemen have pushed the country to the brink of famine, 7 million Yemenis stand on the brink of starvation with the situation one of extreme urgency and 22 million people now in need of emergency humanitarian assistance and protection.
The Saudi War on Yemen has already claimed 56,000 lives. Casualties are running at 2000 per month. The Saudi-led campaign in Yemen has been supported by the UK’s licensing of arms sales to Saudi Arabia, which has totaled £4.7bn since the war in Yemen began in March 2015.
To the Saudi regime we say “Stop slaughtering and starving the Yemeni people”.
To western governments we say “Stop arming and supporting the monstrous Saudi regime. Expel Saudi diplomats now!”
Join us to call for the
- END OF UK ARMS SALES TO SAUDI ARABIA
- END OF THE WAR ON YEMEN
- JUSTICE & ACCOUNTABILITY FOR JAMAL KHASHOGGI, JOURNALIST MURDERED IN THE SAUDI CONSULATE IN ISTANBUL.
