Open letter to David Cameron in The Guardian

You are here: Home / Blog / Foreign Affairs / Open letter to David Cameron in The Guardian
I signed the CAABU inspired one page letter in The Guardian this morning calling on David Cameron to halt the sale of arms to dictators and regimes with appaling human rights records.

The Letter is here:

 Dear Mr Cameron
Supporting democracy whilst selling arms that can be used by regimes to subvert the wishes and aspirations of the people under their rule is morally untenable.

We, the undersigned, welcome the UN’s recent embargo on arms to Libya but call upon the government of the United Kingdom to immediately halt the sale of arms to any regimes that engage in repression. The police and armed forces of Bahrain, Yemen, Morocco and Israel continue to use violence to put down popular protest.

People across the region are risking their lives to fight for their democratic and human rights. Britain’s role in the Middle East and North Africa must change fundamentally if we are to be on the right side of the historic realignment we are currently witnessing in the Arab world.
