Dear [MP’s Name]

As a constituent of [YOUR CONSTITUENCY], I am writing to you to express my concern over the UK’s exportation of tear gas, rubber bullets and riot shields. Reports that these items are being sent to the US are deeply concerning. It is likely that these items will be used against the current peaceful civil rights protestors.

I’m sure you will agree with me that using tear gas and rubber bullets against peaceful protestors is completely unnecessary. Allowing peaceful protest is a key aspect of democracy. The UK should not be complicit in allowing another country to use this force against their citizens, and in fact goes against UK law to allow the export of such items when they may be used for internal repression.

The gravity of this situation is clear.  Please call for a suspension on the selling items such as tear gas, rubber bullets and riot shields to the US.

I appreciate your understanding of my concerns as your constituent, and look forward to seeing my concerns represented.
