CAAT legal challenge granted permission to proceed to High Court
CAAT's legal challenge over the supply of UK weapons for the war in Yemen will now proceed to the High Court.
This March marks six years since Saudi-led forces launched their first attacks on Yemen. Six years of conflict has caused devastation in Yemen. This is six years that shames the UK.
The UK government must now take action to help end this deadly conflict. Every day that this war continues there will be more people killed and more vital services destroyed. The UK must stop its arms sales now, and increase momentum towards peace.
