Campaign Against Arms Trade

From Israel to Hong Kong

Hong Kong protesters run from tear gas

This summer the government refused to Stop Arming Israel, despite admitting that UK arms might have been used in the attacks on Gaza. CAAT has launched legal action to challenge this.

UK-made tear gas was also turned on democracy protesters in Hong Kong, yet the government again did nothing. Please email your MP today.
