Today’s Action: End — really end — US support for the war in Yemen

Last Friday, Saudi Arabian airstrikes knocked out the internet for the entire country of Yemen, killed at least 70 people — including three children who were playing soccer on a nearby field — and injured nearly 160 more. It’s been almost a year since President Biden vowed to end US support for Saudi Arabia’s brutal war in Yemen, and yet, US arm sales to the Saudis have quietly continued — including $650 million worth of missiles and missile launchers approved late last year.

While some senators and representatives spoke out against the plan for the most recent arms sale, it’s clearly not enough. In 2018 and 2019, Congress voted to end US involvement in Yemen with a resolution put forward by Sen. Bernie Sanders. Though it had enough bipartisan support to pass through both the House and the Senate, then-President Trump vetoed the resolution. We need new action from our elected officials now to effectively end the United States’ support for the war in Yemen.

Email or call (202.224.3121) your Members of Congress and demand they propose a new Yemen War Powers Resolution to stop and prohibit US participation in the war!

The Saudi-led war in Yemen is a horrifying humanitarian catastrophe from top to bottom. Saudi pilots, using American planes and American missiles, have bombed weddings, hospitals, and school buses full of children. Since 2015, at least 13,000 civilians have been killed in the fighting while a hundred thousand more have starved to death as a Saudi blockade-induced famine pushes millions more innocent Yemenis to the brink.

President Biden announced last February that he would be halting US support for the Saudi war in Yemen. But that glimmer of hope was quickly extinguished by the inevitable qualification that we would continue providing “defensive” support to the Saudis — which, according to the Pentagon, is much of what we already contribute (intelligence sharing, for example).

This latest war crime by Saudi Arabia is a grim reminder that we are still enabling a moral atrocity in the Middle East’s poorest country, and it’s time we put a stop to it.

Email or call (202.224.3121) your Members of Congress and demand they support and pass a new War Powers Resolution to end ALL US involvement in the Yemen War — no “defensive” strings attached.
