Vredesactie has today launched the report “War in Yemen, Made inEurope”.
The report tries to document as many companies as possible involved in

Last Wednesday the action group ‘Stop the War on Migrants’ held an unnannounced noise demonstration at the headquarters of European arms giant Airbus in the Dutch city of Leiden. The action, at the day of the annual shareholders meeting of Airbus here in Amsterdam, was in protest of both the arms exports of Airbus to countries in conflict and dictatorships, such as Saudi-Arabia and Egypt, and the role of the company in the militarisation and externalisation of the European borders.
