Journalists, Anti-War Activists and Human Rights Lawyers Will Be Leading a Protest Today at the Saudi Arabian Embassy in London at 5pm.
WASHINGTON - The protest is called by the Arab Organisation of Human Rights, the Stop the War Coalition the Bahrain Institute for Rights and Democracy and Global Rights Watch.
It will demand justice for the killing of Jamal Khashoggi and an immediate halt to the bombing of Yemen.
Protestors will also be calling on the British government for an immediate end to all arms sales to Saudi Arabia.
Lindsey German, Stop the War's convenor said;
"Saudi's rulers have murdered a dissident journalist, they are leading a terrible war which is threatening a human catastrophe. It is plainly unacceptable that Britain continues to sell the regime vast amounts of weapons. Breaking our links with the regime is essential."
