UK weapons are being used in Saudi Arabia’s devastating attacks on Yemen – attacks which have killed thousands and created a humanitarian disaster.
CAAT is taking legal action to stop the sales, but every day that the government refuses to act is another day of death and destruction. As we put the arms trade in the spotlight, please contact your MP to make sure Parliament knows that as long as the UK keeps arming Saudi Arabia, we have blood on our hands..
22 & 23 July: It Starts Here
When London plays host to one of the world’s largest arms fairs then war, repression and injustice start here. But so does our resistance: Join us in July and get involved.
Get the arms trade out of government
Security and Jobs
Military spending and bombing don’t make us safer. Join us in calling for a new approach to security, and for a shift from arms to renewables – a change that would create more and better jobs, and a safer world.
