March 26th, 2022 marked seven years of the brutal Saudi-led coalition war in Yemen. A war that has killed almost 400,000 people. Over 4 million people have been displaced because of the war, and 70% of the population, including 11.3 million children are in desperate need of humanitarian assistance. The United Nations declared Yemen the worst humanitarian crisis in the world.
Alongside indiscriminate bombing and killings, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, backed by the United States, Canada, and other colonial powers have imposed an air, land and sea blockade on Yemen since 2015. The blockade has caused severe shortages of fuel, food and medicine.
Canada has blood on its hands. Despite the killings and destruction committed by the Saudi-led coalition in Yemen and despite documentation of the use of Canada-made weapons in the war, the Trudeau government continues to profit from selling arms to Saudi Arabia. The UN Human Rights Council has twice named Canada as one of the states feeding the ongoing war in Yemen.
Since the start of the Saudi-let war in Yemen in 2015, Canada has sold over $8 billion in arms to Saudi Arabia. It is shameful that Canada continues to knowingly profit from selling weapons to Saudi Arabia which are used to kill people in Yemen.
