Yemen: Six Years of War
Fri March 26, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm EDT
President Biden! Hear the World’s Cry for Yemen: End the U.S.-Saudi Blockade and War NOW
The UN Humanitarian Office (OCHA) puts the Yemen war dead at 233,000 as of 4 months ago: over 100,000 killed outright and 131,000 dead from war related disease, economic collapse, cholera and now COVID. This human catastrophe is primarily the result of a Saudi naval and air blockade and its campaign of indiscriminate bombing attacks on farms, factories, hospitals, marketplaces, weddings, an enormous community funeral and even a school bus, killing 40 children.
Yemen is our war. The Obama White House and Saudi Arabia initiated this war on March 26, 2015. The Trump White House escalated support for the Saudis. It is up to the Biden White House to end it – to end it now – and provide relief aid to Yemen’s population now experiencing the world’s greatest man made humanitarian crisis on earth. Yemenis are not our enemy. It is time to take our boot off their necks, let them have their country back, and let their children live.
This March marks six years since the Saudi-led coalition, backed by the U.S. intervened into Yemen’s civil war.
Join us for a LIVE Webinar on March 26th at 4pmPT/7pmET with a range of speakers: activists, researchers and elected officials-where we will go over why the war continues, what is the impact and what folks can do to be part of the anti-war movement – and create real change!
