“No more weapons to kill civilians” ☮🕊✊
Last week, activists from @greenpeace_esp stopped an arms shipment, bound for the countries of the Saudi-led coalition involved in the war in Yemen, for several hours. Their aim, to prevent these weapons from being used against civilians and demand transparency over the Spanish arms trade. Since the war in Yemen began in March 2015, 9,245 civilians have been killed and 52,807 have been injured. But instead of meeting their obligations under international humanitarian and human rights laws, the Spanish government has authorised illicit shipments of war materials. Don’t you think it’s time governments stopped profiting off the war machine and put a real effort into peace, instead? #PeoplePower #GivePeaceaChance #LovenotWar #Activism #Pacifism #NonViolence via Instagram http://ift.tt/2BzPVnX
