Information from the organisers
The British government has invited Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad Bin Salman to visit later this year. The visit will further cement British government involvement in the war in Yemen, repression in Saudi Arabia and Bahrain, and imperialist actions in the region. The speakers will explain the issues and why we must organise against British foreign policy in the Gulf.
