Stop Bombing Yemen, Stop Arming Saudi - public meeting:

Tue 4 Dec 2018, 7.30pm, Central United Reform Church Norfolk Row S1 2JB

Sheffield Stop the War Coalition are holding this meeting on the most atrocious current conflict, and the hypocritical arms dealing of Western governments.The Saudi regime is one of the most brutal and authoritarian anywhere in the world. Its ruler Mohammed Bin Salman is implicated in the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi in Turkey and has rounded up and tortured opponents at home. His government is also the main protagonist of the terrible war on Yemen. The war has already devastated Yemen and killed tens of thousands of people. Aid agencies warn that if it continues it will cause the worst humanitarian catastrophe since World War 2, yet the British government continues to back the regime. Earlier this year Theresa May welcomed Bin Salman to Britain, claiming he was a reformer. Really the British government stays close to Saudi Arabia because Saudi buys more arms from Britain than any other country, because it is a major oil supplier to the West and because it has long been a key ally in a region the West is desperate to control.Ending arms sales to Saudi Arabia is essential and urgent. It could help to avert catastrophe. Come to this public meeting and join in the campaign to make it happen.Sheffield Stop the War Coalition on Facebook
