مشاركة مجموعة أصدقاء اليمن في حزب العمال في المؤتمر السنوي للحزب 2021
28 September 2021: Members of the executive team have been meeting with several Labour leaders and representatives of other pressure groups during the Labour Annual Conference. During these meetings reinforcing Labour’s commitments to help Yemen and resolve the devastating conflict has been discussed.
Among those the team had met were Angela Rayner MP (Deputy Leader of the Labour Party), Lisa Nandy MP (Shadow Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs) and Vaughan Gething MP (Welsh Labour Minister for the Economy). LFY has expressed again its concerns about the declining involvement of the Party in this issue, specially the humanitarian situation caused by 7 years of the ongoing civil war and regional interferences.
It has been agreed that Labour should play an active role to put pressure on the UK government, as well as the international and regional players, to encourage peaceful dialogue between all parties and to hold those committed serious violations of the international humanitarian law accountable.
It was also agreed that Labour should listen more to the Yemeni voices inside the party as well as in the Yemeni community in the UK in order to better understand the situation and move forward to help stopping the war and brining a lasting and sustainable peace to all Yemenis.
