UK manufactured tear gas or rubber bullets are exported to the US govt. Recent footage following the murder of George Floyd has shown that the police in the US are using such weapons against peaceful protestors, civilians, and members of the press.  British law requires exports to be suspended if they are used for internal repression. Bearing this in mind the SU should write a letter to the NUS and the Huddersfield MP, Barry Sheerman asking them to use whatever means available to them, to pressurize the UK Govt to suspend the exports of such security equipment used against protestors in the United States.
