Emergency Rally on 3d anniversary of US-Saudi war on Yemen

March 26, 2018 @ 8:30 am - 9:30 am

MBS Protest, MIT, March 23, 2018

Protest Saudi Crown Prince at Four Seasons Hotel

Monday, March 26, 8:30 am
Four Seasons Hotel, 200 Boylston Street, Boston (corner of Charles)
(Arlington or Boylston stop on the Green line)

Monday is the 3rd anniversary of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MBS)’s war against Yemen with the military backing of the United States. We have solid information that as part of his visit to the U.S. he and his retinue are staying at the Four Seasons Hotel right here in downtown Boston. Let’s make our voices heard against this Saudi-U.S. war that has turned Yemen into the worst human rights disaster in the world today. The Saudi bombing and blockade has killed thousands, spawned mass starvation and caused the largest outbreak of cholera in the past 50 years. Join us to let the murderer of Yemen know that we are determined to stop his war crimes.

We demand: 

– that MBS agree to an immediate, unconditional, and permanent ceasefire between Saudi-associated forces and Houthi forces in Yemen;

– that MBS agree to the immediate, unconditional, and permanent end to the Saudi blockade of the commercial and humanitarian flow of food, medicine, and fuel into all of Yemen’s Red Sea ports, including Hodeida.

Here are a 10 minute audio summary by WMBR, 45 minute video, and stills  of our protest at MIT on Friday.

Massachusetts Peace Action joins with Action Corps Boston, the Green-Rainbow Party, Veterans for Peace/ Smedley Butler Brigade, American Friends Service Committee, Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom Boston Branch, Harvard Law School Justice for Palestine, Harvard Law School National Lawyers Guild, and MIT Science for the People to say:

Stop the US/Saudi War on Yemen!

Saudi Prince Not Welcome!

Yemen Can’t Wait!
