Protests Planned Next Week Against Saudi Crown Prince Visit to UK

Saudi Crown Prince
High-profile campaign groups plan to hold protests in London next week against a visit to Britain by the powerful Saudi Crown Prince to raise alarm over Riyadh’s war crimes in Yemen and its human rights record.

Among the organizers are the Campaign Against Arms Trade (CAAT) and Stop the War Coalition, which counts Shadow Home Secretary Diane Abbott among their patrons, Sky News reported on Wednesday.

The protesters will gather outside Downing Street next Wednesday, when Mohammed bin Salman arrives in the UK to meet with Prime Minister Theresa May.

The activists have urged the premier to “show some backbone” over Saudi Arabia’s human rights violations and end Britain’s arms sales to the kingdom, which has been engaged in a deadly war against Yemen over the past three years.

The UK has increased its weapons sales by around 500 percent since the onset of the deadly Saudi military campaign that has killed thousands of people in Yemen so far.
