Militarised borders criminalise and kill those fleeing the violence of armed conflicts and environmental collapse. Refugees seeking safety should be allowed to pass freely across borders to claim their legal right to asylum, rather than be revictimised by officials and police.
Security forces attacked refugees crossing into #Melilla to stop them reaching Spain and claiming asylum, killing 23 and wounding many others. Solidarity with all those affected by this dreadful attack. theguardian.com/world/2022/jun…
But that’s just the tip of the iceberg. LGPS funds also invest in companies supplying arms and military tech used to repress Palestinians, as well as companies active in Israel’s illegal settlements. Full research: lgpsdivest.org/lgps-investmen… (3/5)

Today marks the International Day in Support of Victims of Torture. We remember all those tortured at the hands of Bahraini government, as documented in the BICI report, and we continue to strive to hold those responsible to account.

Very disappointing but not surprising to see @BAESystemsplc listed as a sponsor of @NewStatesman's Politics Live conference next week. There's a reason why companies likely complicit in war crimes in #Yemen are so invested in partnering with the establishment - left or right.

Prisoners of conscience in #Bahrain have spent over a decade detained. The UK has licenced almost £140 million worth of arms exports in the same period. Licencing arms & licencing impunity. @BirdBahrain_ & @CAATuk stand in solidarity w/ victims of torture in Bahrain today.

An important step forward - US will limit use of landmines to Korean peninsular and will destroy stockpiles. But need to go further. US Campaign to Ban Landmines-US Cluster Munition Coalition welcomes new US Landmine Policy, Calls for Accession to Treaty banminesusa.org/news/2022/06/2…
A grim statistic. @UNITED__Network #AgainstRefugeeDeaths have updated their list of refugees who have died as a result of the policies of "Fortress Europe" since 1993. There are now 48,647 human beings on the list, some whose names are known, others not. unitedagainstrefugeedeaths.eu
A very positive development. It does not go as far as it might, but a clear step forward in acknowledging the extreme harm caused by using explosive weapons in populated areas, with commitments to reducing it. Well done to @explosiveweapon and to Ireland for leading the effort twitter.com/explosiveweapo…

Solidarity with those protesting the gigantic Eurosatory arms fair in Paris. Ridiculous they have been banned from protesting while arms dealers are still free to promote their deadly weapons twitter.com/stopfuellingwa…

Campaigners are talking about the environmental impact of military activities and arms companies. Our friends @ResponsibleSci and @declassifiedUK looked into this for the UK a couple of years ago. Their report is here: sgr.org.uk/sites/default/…
Solidarity with protesters vs. the gigantic Eurosatory arms fair in Paris who have been blocked from taking any action near the fair. Meanwhile, arms dealers are welcome to come and ply their deadly trade. twitter.com/stopfuellingwa…
As with the UK, so with the US. The Government Accountability Office finds the Biden Administration has failed to investigate how US arms have been used to commit abuses in Yemen. theguardian.com/us-news/2022/j…

At UK Parliament with the brilliant @ralfaqih of @MwatanaEn “When the world pays attention to #Yemen the violations decrease. When it looks the other way, they go up again.”
Retweeted by CAAT
It was a pleasure to meet @ralfaqih, but hard listening to what he and @MwatanaEn colleagues have to go through daily to stand up for the rights of their fellow Yemenis. The UK Gov must not forget the conflict in Yemen, and the responsibility they have to end it. #YemenCantWait twitter.com/MGLattimer/sta…
