#Yemen Today: A Plea From Their Hearts. (incl. medical responses re: radiation poisoning -see links-, & letters to Foreign Sec. & PM)

                               "This makes me scared a lot about the weird silence"

Quote: "American Senator Chris Murphy (D-CT) states, "There's an American imprint on every civilian life lost in Yemen," according to CNN. Under the administration of President Barack Obama the US has sold more weapons to Saudi Arabia than any other administration. America also assisted the Saudi-led coalition in Yemen (with) intelligence and refueling planes during airstrikes. "If you talk (to) Yemenis, they will tell you, this is not perceived to be a Saudi bombing campaign. This is perceived to be a U.S. bombing campaign," Murphy said."...

 ...""They will highlight and sometimes even exaggerate crimes against humanity and other human rights abuses by countries they perceive as enemy but deny, minimize and cover up for such crimes by governments they consider to be allies," Zunes explained."

A Letter to the Foreign Secretary.

Quote; "The war in Yemen is brutal, and all sides stand accused of violating International Humanitarian Law. Our government is allowing British weapons to be sold to Saudi Arabia. Saudi airstrikes have destroyed food supplies, schools, hospitals and homes.
With their communities under attack, more than 21 million people in Yemen are in need of aid – more than any other country in the world. Over 3 million people have been forced to flee their homes. Children are being brought into clinics weak and clinging onto life because they don’t have enough food and water.
Boris Johnson has the power to do the right thing. As Foreign Secretary, he can immediately suspend arms exports to Saudi Arabia, and support an independent investigation into International Humanitarian Law violations.
We have a duty to protect people – and our obligations under the Arms Trade Treaty make that clear. We must put a stop to UK supplied arms destroying lives in Yemen – please take action now."

Quote; "It is time the UK government ceased its support for a Saudi state that terrorises its own people and blatantly violates human rights and fundamental freedoms.

Saudi Arabia ought to be treated as a global pariah, following the decision of its supreme court to uphold the sentence of 10 years in jail and 1,000 lashes on Raif Badawi for the crime of expressing the wrong opinions. But there is no sign that this sadistic cruelty is disturbing the close and decades-long friendship between Whitehall and Riyadh.

Saudi Arabia is currently the UK’s largest arms export market. It is a nonsense to claim, as ministers do, that this military cooperation is about nothing more than the Saudis’ right to self-defence. The reason we do not arm Iran, Syria or North Korea is that arms sales are inescapably an expression of political support and commitment to regime survival.

We urge Theresa May to speak out publicly against all human rights abuses in Saudi Arabia and to specifically call for the immediate unconditional release of Raif Badawi and his lawyer Waleed Abulkhair - and all political prisoners. The UK government should cease its support for a Saudi state that terrorises its own people and blatantly violates human rights and fundamental freedoms: Arms sales must end, the British ambassador should be recalled, and key regime figures sanctioned internationally. Please sign now to email Theresa May to tell her to stop the UK profiting from selling arms to a cruel regime."
