Fair

From the publisher:

Drafted in the late summer of 2017, as preparations for the DSEI Arms Fair were underway at ExCel London, in London Docklands, this poem is concerned with the war waged by Saudi Arabia in Yemen, British arms sales to the Saudis, along with the training of military personnel, and with the humanitarian catastrophe suffered by the Yemeni population. Both Sir Michael Fallon, then Minister for Defence, and Liam Fox, Secretary of State for International Trade, gave speeches at the Arms Fair. On 12 July, the Home Secretary, Amber Rudd, issued a written statement to Parliament announcing that a long-awaited report on the funding of domestic extremism would not after all be published but could be consulted by Privy Councillors.

Part of the proceeds from this pamphlet will be donated to the Campaign Against the Arms Trade.
