· We urge adherence to the ceasefire, declared on 10 October, but so quickly broken. Since September 27, hundreds of people have been killed in this latest escalation of the decades-old conflict over Nagorno-Karabakh. As in all conflicts and wars, women bear the greatest burden.
· We stand with WiB Belgrade who held their vigil on
7 October 2020 with the message: “We strongly condemn the shameful and criminal export of weapons produced in Serbia, from which arms exporters profit the most.
We demand that the export of weapons to both Armenia and
Azerbaijan be stopped IMMEDIATELY and that arms exporters be sanctioned. See more here: http://zeneucrnom.org/sr/
· We condemn the UK Government’s role is supplying arms to
Armenia, Azerbaijan, Turkey and Russia, the last two being ‘military players’ in the region. CAAT has documented these sales since 2008. More here https://caat.org.uk/data/exports-uk/
· The arms trade has no frontiers. It cannot be ‘controlled’ It must be stopped.
Write to the Dominic Raab, Secretary of State at the Foreign,
Commonwealth & Development Office urging that the UK Government do all it can to support a ceasefire and urging that UK arms sales to the
region be stopped. FCDO, King Charles Street, London SW1A 2AH (firstname.lastname@example.org)
