Our Launch Event at the House of Commons, Wednesday 13th of February 2019

In the presence of a large and unprecedented gathering held yesterday in the House of Commons, Graham Jones MP and Steven Twigg MP co-hosted the Launch Event for Labour Friends of Yemen.

The Event was exceptionally well attended, with Keith Vaz MP, a number of members from the Labour shadow government, Labour Party MPs, members of local councils, His Excellency the Yemeni Ambassador to the UK, community leaders and activists from across the United Kingdom. A remarkable and promising beginning for our team!

Labour Friends of Yemen is a forum within the Labour Party for constructive discussions and responsible debates on matters related to Yemen, with the aims to promote and advocate a clear vision for supporting the country to reach peace and help its people to rebuild a modern state based on principles of democracy, human rights and equal citizenship.
