Join the Guildford District CAAT group for an informative talk from David Wearing on UK arms sales to Saudi Arabia- and some ideas for action!
Thursday 24 March, 7pm – 9.30pm
Godalming Baptist Church, Queen Street, Godalming, GU7 1BA
Saudi Arabia is the UK’s biggest arms customer and most shameful relationship. One of the world’s most authoritarian regimes, its repression at home and aggression abroad is propped up and supported by UK arms sales. The UK has continued to support Saudi air strikes in Yemen and provide arms– an astonishing £2.8 billion since the bombing started – despite strong evidence that war crimes may have been committed.
With BAE Systems, one of the world’s largest arms companies and a major UK suppliers of equipment to the Saudi regime, based nearby in Farnborough it’s vital that we raise awareness locally of the atrocities being carried out in Yemen.
All welcome- Refreshments will be available from 7pm and the talk will begin at 7.30 pm.
