UK Campaign To Stop Arms Sales Crowdfunding Court Fees

The British Campaign Against Arms Trade (CAAT)is crowdfunding to pay court ordered fees.

Not to be outdone by the United States, the United Kingdom has authorized and shipped £4.6 billion in missiles and bombs to Saudi Arabia for its proxy war in Yemen against the Houthis who are backed by Iran.

CAAT has filed suit in UK courts to stop the arms sales but has recently lost the case and is now appealing.

It’s reported that “CAAT has already been ordered to pay £40,000 in court fees, and has applied for the costs of the appeal to be capped at a further £30,000, but as yet has no guarantee that the associated costs will not be even higher than this.”

CAAT believes that a majority of the British population agrees with its cause.
