Campaign against arms trade
£320m in arms sales to Israel since 2014 render UK 'complicit' in Gaza atrocities, campaigners argue
UK is “sending a message of support for the collective punishment that has been inflicted”, Campaign Against Arms Trade say
ANTI-ARMS TRADE campaigners have hit out against the sale of weapons to Israeli forces, following the release of new figures showing that the UK has licensed over £320m worth of arms to Israel since the beginning of the 2014 Gaza war.
UK’s Saudi arms sales violate humanitarian law, campaigners say
Demo at Saudi Arabian embassy will protest UK arms sales amid humanitarian crisis
CAMPAIGN AGAINST ARMS TRADE (CAAT) will hold a protest outside the Saudi Arabian embassy in London on 3 February in opposition to the UK Government’s continued sale of arms to Saudi Arabia which are being used in its war against Yemen.
The UK has sold over £4.7bn worth of weapons to the Saudi Arabian regime since the war started in March 2015. The UN has described the conflict as a humanitarian crisis and that Saudi Arabia breached international law with airstrikes in Yemen.
