In the first episode of Conatus Views Season 2, Dan Fisher and Beatrice Louis discuss the airstrike by the Saudi – led coalition on a Yemeni school bus in Saada on August 9th killing nearly 79, many of them children. Subsequently, it had been reported that the bomb used was supplied by US manufacturer Lockheed Martin, and no restrictions on the supply of arms has been enacted since. As civilian deaths continue to spike in Yemen, this episode discusses the implications for peace, continuing loss of life – and what peace activists and concerned citizens can focus on.
