CAABU is the Council for the Advancement of Arab-British Understanding. Never has it been more needed than NOW.
In the Arab Spring, or Uprising, we have seen three Arab dictators overthrown, and major reforms in two Arab monarchies, while in Syria and Iraq the future is uncertain.
CAABU is urgently needed to interpret the Arab world to Britain, and vice-versa. Western-style democracy may not be the first choice for many Arabs. It is, however, clear that almost all Arabs want systems of government that respect personal and family dignity. Almost anything would be better than tyrants, who imprisoned and tortured as they saw fit.
Each year it costs just over £250,000 to keep CAABU running. This covers work in Parliament, the media, universities and schools, as well as the organizing of exchange visits and training courses. Please contribute as generously as you can, to an organization costing a tiny fraction of the smallest war. CAABU’s address is 1 Gough Square, London EC4A 3DE – www.caabu.org.
