Students Say No To War In Yemen

An online event organised by London Students for Yemen as part of the global day of action against war in Yemen. Speakers include Ahmed Al-Batati, who was recently thrown out of the British army for speaking against the UK's military support for Saudi Arabia.

The war in Yemen has caused over 250,000 deaths and led to over 20 million people requiring humanitarian assistance. An entire generation of young people are at risk due to starvation.

This situation was not inevitable, but is the man-made result of years of bombing, human rights violations and naval blockades.

On the 25th January, over 200 organisations are coming together to call on governments around the world to end their roles in the war. The UK government allows weapons sales to countries involved in the Yemeni war, while UK armed forces train the Saudi forces bombing civilians in Yemen.

This event will be a panel of speakers presenting on the topic, covering issues relating to Yemen's current humanitatian situation, how the UK's role in it is in violation of both international and British law, and further situatingthe  British arms trade in its wider historical context.

Confirmed speakers include:

Molly Mulready, a Former UK Foreign Office Lawyer

Andrew Feinstein, Executive Director of Corruption Watch, Shadow World Investigations and Author

Ahmed Al-batati, a British soldier who recently stood down from duty in protest against the UK's role in Yemen

Students and young people are particularly encouraged to join since the discussion will be hosted by London Students for Yemen.
