The UN calls the war in Yemen the “world’s worst man-made humanitarian disaster”. In March 2015, the Saudi-led coalition launched its military intervention in Yemen.
Despite the ongoing war and reports about the Saudi-led coalition breaching international humanitarian law, European arms companies are profiting from the war in Yemen and the suffering it has caused, by supplying arms to members of the Saudi-led coalition.
By not stopping arms exports, European governments contribute to the suffering of the Yemeni people. This war is also “Made in Europe” and we must continue to resist it here.
On the occasion of the 5th ‘anniversary’ of the beginning of the Yemen war, we spoke with one voice to the arms companies, national governments and to the EU: Stop Arming the Saudi-led Coalition!
We showed our solidarity and concern, even when locked into our houses. Imagine what a virus is doing in a country like Yemen, where the health system has collapsed and hospitals are being bombed.
