Dear friends,

At a time when millions of people across the world are concerned
about food supplies and the ability of our health systems to
respond to crisis, Yemen must not be forgotten.

Today marks five years since a Saudi-Arabian led coalition began
bombing Yemen – five years in which Yemen's health system has
"almost collapsed."

Yemen has no recorded cases of Covid-19 yet, but it is already
enduring a humanitarian catastrophe
( [link removed] )
with millions facing starvation and disease.

This is a man-made catastrophe. As Yemeni-based Mwatana for Human
Rights ( [link removed] ) show:
"This state of affairs is not an arbitrary consequence of war. It
is the direct result of how the conflict has been prosecuted by
warring parties: with utter disregard for international law and
humanitarian norms."

Attacks by the Saudi-led coalition have destroyed infrastructure
across Yemen. Saudi forces have targeted hospitals, clinics and
vaccinations centres. Blockades have starved the population and
made it hard for hospitals to get essential medical supplies.

The UK is complicit: many of the Coalition’s attacks have been
carried out with UK-made fighter jets, and UK-made bombs and
missiles – and the UK government has supported them with billions
of pounds of arms sales.

The same is true of companies and governments across Europe. This
is why we have been working with allies from all over the
continent to show how this war is "Made in Europe."

We can't protest in person today – but we can still stand
together in solidarity and resistance.

In solidarity,
