Yemeni activists launch "Boycott UAE Products" campaign

Yemeni activists have orchestrated an online campaign encouraging people around the world to boycott products made by the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

The campaign came in response to the Gulf state's involvement in serious human rights violations and possible war crimes in Yemen.

Dubbed “Boycott the UAE Products,” the initiative has already been endorsed by social media users as well as some key Arab figures, said Abdullah al-Harazi, one of the founders of the campaign.

He told the al-Khaleej Online news website that the campaign seeks to first produce a list of well-known Emirati firms to avoid harming Arab and Islamic firms that only operate in the country as part of their business.

The ultimate goal of the campaign is pressuring Abu Dhabi into ending its atrocities in Yemen by putting economic pressure on Emirati businesses, he added.
