Emergency Rally to end U.S. arms sales to Saudi Arabia
November 14, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
The past weeks have seen a dramatic shift in mainstream attitudes toward our relationship with Saudi Arabia. The grisly killing of Jamal Khashoggi is reverberating throughout power circles in the U.S. and has shaken the very basis of a consensus around the U.S.-Saudi alliance.
For the first time U.S. weapons sales, particularly by Raytheon, are being seriously questioned as the rage around Khashoggi has opened the door to unprecedented questioning of the U.S.-Saudi war in Yemen. Now is the time for us to seize the moment and turn the present tumult against U.S.-Saudi collaboration in attacking Yemen, in tearing up the Iran nuclear deal, and in promoting devastating sanctions and even war with Iran. In short, we need take advantage of this opening — as long as it exists — to breakup Trump’s love affair with the Saudis and with Raytheon and the other companies that thrive on war. Who knows, we may even be able to do something that helps the people of Yemen!
