Saturday, March 25 will mark the eighth anniversary of the beginning of the Saudi-led coalition’s bombing of Yemen. To mark the occasion, a coalition of US and international groups will hold an online rally to inspire and enhance education and activism to end the war in Yemen at 12 Noon eastern time, Saturday, March 25. Two years ago, over 10,000 people viewed a similar online rally. Please help us spread the word so we can top that this year! You can register here.
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 is 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.
Please plan to join us on March 25, and feel free to send this notice to anyone you think would be interested. Yemen Can’t Wait.
