Stop selling weapons fuelling the Yemen conflict
Right now, the Australian Government is supporting companies selling weapons to parties to the conflict in Yemen – where over 85,000 children have already died, and where all sides have been accused of violating the rights of children.
Tell the Australian Government enough is enough: stop selling weapons fuelling the Yemen conflict.
- The Australian Government has provided $36 million in taxpayer funded assistance to a Canberra defence company exporting weapons systems destined for Saudi Arabia. We are calling on the Defence Minister to introduce a ban on these military equipment sales.
- War-makers make deliberate decisions that result in the killing and maiming of children. It’s a crime – an affront to our humanity – but the wider scandal is that so many governments have a responsibility to do more which they are not fulfilling.
- Australia should join Germany, Finland, the Netherlands and Denmark in suspending military equipment exports to countries involved in the Yemen conflict.
This is not who we are. This is not how Australians want to be represented. Now is your chance to have your voice heard.
