Stop arms trade to Saudi Arabia
The UK Court of Appeal has found that UK arms sales to Saudi Arabia are unlawful.
The Court found the UK government to have failed in its legal obligation to make a systematic assessment of the risk of serious violations of International Humanitarian Law by Saudi Arabia.
Saudi Arabia leads a coalition in a protracted war in Yemen. Many breaches of humanitarian and human rights law have been alleged.
Australia must cease military exports to saudi arabia.
Australia has an obligation, under domestic law and as a signatory to the Arms Trade Treaty, to assess military exports against the risk of human rights abuses and serious violations of humanitarian and human rights law.
Australian officials have failed to provide evidence of lawful risk assessment and monitoring of exports to Saudi Arabia.
Australian officials have kept exports to Saudi Arabia secret, and provided tens of millions of dollars of direct subsidies to companies profiting from exports to parties leading the war in Yemen.
We're calling for an end to military and strategic exports to Saudi Arabia.
