World Says No to War on Yemen: International Online Discussion

Thu October 8, 2020 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm EDT

World Says No War on Yemen

Yemeni Alliance Committee (US), Stop the War (UK) and Action Corps (US), with the Yemen Relief and Reconstruction Foundation, American Friends Service Committee, CODEPINK, Massachusetts Peace Action, Voices for Creative Nonviolence, the Raytheon Antiwar Campaign,* and political leaders and activists in France, Italy and beyond, invite you to this international online discussion. Let’s build power to stop Western and US backing of the war on Yemen!

WHY OCTOBER 8?

Thursday, October 8, marks the 4-year anniversary of a Saudi-led coalition airstrike on a funeral ceremony in Sana’a, Yemen, killing at least 100 people and wounding more than 500. Recently the bombing and blockade of Yemen — with western participation — has only gotten worse. As we all deal with the pandemic, which has exacerbated the suffering of people in Yemen, now is the time to connect and recommit ourselves to stopping participation in this disastrous war.
