‘Despite promises of reform after the violent crackdown in 2011, repression in Bahrain has intensified. Those who speak up for democratic reform face being tortured and locked up, or sent into exile.
The UK government is still prioritising arms sales over human rights in Bahrain – even sending Prince Andrew to the Bahrain International Airshow to help sell BAE’s Eurofighter Typhoons. Bahrain has no military need for fighter jets, but it does have a political need: buying UK weapons is also buying UK silence on Bahrain’s human rights abuses.
Please ask your MP to take action to promote human rights, not arms sales, to Bahrain.’
