At this time of great human suffering, we cannot forget the 377,000 Yemenis who have died from bombing and starvation because of the Saudi-U.S. war in Yemen. Yemen is the largest humanitarian crisis in the world – 17 million people are food insecure, 2.2 million of which are children. On the campaign trail, Biden said he would stop US support for Suadi Arabia, yet he has not. Saudi Arabia continues to bomb Yemen civilians using Raytheon’s weapons with the US government’s blessing.
Many parallels can be drawn between the events in Ukraine and the events in Yemen. The war in Ukraine has caused over 900 civilian deaths and over 1400 wounded, and this number continues to rise. It is heartbreaking to hear that innocent civilians are dying in this heinous, illegal war. Since so many believe the Ukraine War is wrong, we call on you to look at the relationship between the US government and Raytheon and the presence of Raytheon weapons Saudi Arabia is using to bomb innocent Yemenis.
