We are taking action to end Canada’s role in fuelling this horrific war. Help us spread the word. Here are sample social media messages.
March 25 marks 6 years of a brutal US-backed, Saudi-led, Canada-armed war on #Yemen. Alongside an ongoing bombing campaign, an air, land & sea blockade persists, causing fuel & food shortages, resulting in 400,000 children at risk of dying right now. #CanadaStopArmingSaudi
Even before COVID19, the United Nations had declared #Yemen the worst humanitarian crisis in the world. Now Yemen is facing famine along with pandemic outbreaks, with an overwhelmed medical system devastated by war and blockade. #CanadaStopArmingSaudi #YemenCantWait
Canada has blood on its hands! Despicable that 🇨🇦 continues to profit from selling arms to Saudi Arabia & the military coalition at war with #Yemen. Canada exported nearly $2.9billion in military equipment to Saudi Arabia in 2019 alone. #CanadaStopArmingSaudi #YemenCantWait
All month activists across Canada have been showing up at MP & company offices demanding they end their complicity in fueling the war on #Yemen and #StopArmingSaudi. Canada exported nearly $2.9billion of military equipment to Saudi Arabia in 2019 alone. https://peaceandjusticenetwork.ca/takingactiontostoparmingsaudi/
28 Canadian companies implicated in the arms trade to Saudi Arabia were named this month. It's despicable for anyone to be profiting off of arming the worst humanitarian crisis on the planet in #Yemen. It’s time — #CanadaStopArmingSaudi. #YemenCantWait https://peaceandjusticenetwork.ca/stoparmingsaudi/
.@JustinTrudeau - a letter signed by 68 groups, repping 1mil people, was delivered to your office on March 1. You’ve been ignoring us for over two years. It’s time for answers & action. #CanadaStopArmingSaudi #YemenCantWait https://peaceandjusticenetwork.ca/stoparmingsaudi/
The Canadian government and many Canadian companies are deeply complicit in the brutal and devastating war on #Yemen, which has now persisted for 6 YEARS. #CanadaStopArmingSaudi immediately and expand humanitarian aid for the people of Yemen. #YemenCantWait
On Feb 4 Biden announced the US would freeze all US arms sales to Saudi Arabia and end US support for the Saudi-led war on Yemen. Germany & Italy have halted arms trade to SA too. @JustinTrudeau — your turn. #CanadaStopArmingSaudi #YemenCantWait #cdnpoli
.@JustinTrudeau—over 2 years you've received multiple letters in which dozens of groups repping millions have repeatedly demanded #CanadaStopArmingSaudi. We've petitioned, presented, protested, blocked arms. We've gotten NO ANSWER. Tell us—who do you answer to, who do you serve?
DYK that Canada is a leading weapons supplier to Saudi Arabia, and that Canadian companies are currently profiting from arming the worst humanitarian crisis on the planet in Yemen? DYK Canada is the second-largest arms supplier to the entire Middle East? #CanadaStopArmingSaudi
