The Yemen crisis and reforming Britain’s arms trade

Date
Mon 23.09.19
Timings
11am – 12:30pm

Saudi Arabia’s intervention into Yemen’s civil war has been made possible by British arms sales, British contractors and British political cover of well-documented violations of international humanitarian law.

This session is for activists and Labour Party members to rethink how Britain’s arms sector is configured and how Britain projects power overseas. Attendees will learn about Britain’s involvement in the Yemen war and will deliberate alternative futures to the current national military and industrial model.
