Canadian MP stands with Yemen – calls for a weapon ban on Saudi Arabia

,

SHAFAQNA – Canadian-based NGO CD4HR (Canadian Defenders for Human Rights) and the Yemeni Community in Canada (@YemeniCanada) hosted MP Helene Laverdiere at their protest in Ottawa calling for an end to all weapon sales to Saudi Arabia on the basis that Riyadh has proven to have violated Canada’s  laws and regulations on the uses of such weapons on civilians.

 

Backed in their efforts by Amnesty International and several of Canada’s largest rights groups, the NGOs have vowed to push for a change in policy to prevent further abuses.
