New York Times: Don't Ignore the War & Famine in Yemen!

United Nations and other international aid officials have been warning that Yemen is on the brink of famine. "Donald Trump’s Shift On Yemen Risks Plunging The Country Into Famine," the Huffington Post reports, warning that the Trump Administration may be giving Saudi Arabia a green light to attack and close the critical port of Hodeidah, blocking Yemen's food imports. "Yemen war causing world's worst food crisis," Vatican Radio reports. "'Time running out': 1.4 million children could die from famine in Africa & Yemen, says UNICEF," RT reports. But a search of recent stories on the New York Times' website only turns up wire stories, not a regular New York Times article. 

Please urge NYT editors for prominent coverage of the UN's famine warning for Yemen by signing our petition below!

Dear New York Times Editor:

I urge you to report the UN famine warning for Yemen. It's time to acknowledge the U.S. role in the war causing the famine risk! If the Huffington Post, RT news and the Vatican Radio can report on the growing crisis Yemen, so should the New York Times!

Sincerely,

    It’s outrageous the Yemen war has received so little news coverage. I urge greater attention to this crisis, including the shameful role of the U.S. in arming Saudi Arabia and in allowing the slaughter, which is resulting in an acute famine situation.

    Do all people marrer or only those we like? I have worked in Yemen and admire and looking me their efforts to spread health care and nutrition se vices to terribly vulnerable people. We ask, why do they hate us? Damnng poor people and countries that are not flavor of the month is not being of the reasons.
