Despite the ongoing humanitarian situation in Yemen and recurrent accusations of breaches of human rights committed by the Saudi&dashled coalition, the UK continues to export arms to Saudi Arabia. As concerned citizens, we say this cannot go on.
On September 13 2017, the European Parliament again called for an EU&dashwide arms embargo against the Saudi state. It issued the same call in February 2016 and some EU member states have now suspended their arms trade with Riyadh.
