March 25th marks the eighth anniversary of the beginning of the Saudi-led coalition’s bombing of Yemen. We cannot let there be a ninth!
Please join a coalition of US and international groups including Peace Action, Yemen Relief and Reconstruction Foundation, Action Corps, Friends Committee on National Legislation, Stop the War UK, and more for an online rally to inspire and enhance education and activism to end the war in Yemen.
Speakers will include: Dr. Shireen Al-Adeimi, Sen. Bernie Sanders, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Rep. Ro Khanna, Rep. Rashida Tlaib, Rep. Mark Pocan, Rep. Maxwell Alejandro Frost, Angelina Jolie, Prof. Cornel West, Member of British Parliament Jeremy Corbyn, Representatives from Stop the War UK and the Committee Against the Arms Trade
As we continue to push for a complete end to US support for the Saudi-led war, the next weeks and months will be critical. With the US Congress potentially poised to vote on a War Powers Resolution, should current negotiations between US Senator Bernie Sanders and the Biden Administration not yield a successful outcome, our advocacy and activism are extremely timely. And while we have not completely succeeded as of yet, we are helping save lives in Yemen. Every day the Saudi-led coalition refrains from resuming bombing, Yemeni lives are saved. But with a blockade in place severely limiting the ability of the Yemeni people to rebuild their lives and the country’s economy, we cannot let up.
