Grace McNamee started this petition to UK Parliament and

We want the UK government to freeze exports of tear gas, rubber bullets, riot shields and all other items of policing and security equipment to the USA, as these items are being used for internal oppresion of citizens, making the uninterrupted export of these goods illegal under UK law at this time.

The continued export of policing and security equipment to the USA is both illegal and immoral. There are countless examples of police brutality towards nonviolent protestors being documented accross the USA amidst the ongoing George Floyd protests. The continued supply of UK made policing and security equipment to the US government and police force during these protests is not only a violation of UK law, but also a contributing factor to the daily abuse of citizens' rights in the USA.
